Hagi Festival

Photo by 山の旅人2003 used under CC

You must be wondering, what’s hagi? Well, it’s the Japanese name for bush clover. It might sound like a strange plant to have a festival for, but the event is more about enjoying Mukojima-Hyakkaen Gardens and its variety of beautiful fall plants. From the get-go, visitors walk through a long tunnel of hagi, grown on a 30-meter-long bamboo frame. Aki no nanakusa (‘seven wild flowers of fall’) are also in bloom for your viewing pleasure.

The gardens are a nationally recognized scenic and historic park built during the Bunka-Bunsei period (1804-1830) by an antique merchant, Kiku Sahara, and his friends.

From September 23-25, closing time is extended to 9pm.
