Spring Flowers at Showa Kinen Park

7:30am – 5:00pm
¥448 (on the door)

Tachikawa’s Showa Kinen Park has all kinds of flowers in bloom throughout spring, though it’s the tulips that tend to get the most attention. It’s a great place to visit if you feel like getting out of the city and stretching your legs, but don’t want to travel too far. Also, if you’re a morning person, the park opens extra early during spring, from 7:30am instead of 9:30am — but only from the Nishi-Tachikawa Gate. For the Nishi-Tachikawa Gate, use Nishi-Tachikawa Station (on the JR Ome Line), which is the closest station anyway.

What’s blooming?

  • Cherry blossoms (Somei Yoshino) Late March to early April in the Cherry Blossom Garden (桜の園)
  • Rape blossoms (nanohana) Early to late April in the Flower Garden East (東花畑)
  • Tulips Early to late April in the Serpentine Area (渓流広場)
  • Nemophila Early April to mid-May on Herb Hill (ハーブの丘)
  • “Bouquet Garden” (mixed blooms) Early to late May in the Flower Garden South (南花畑)
  • Red poppies Early to late May on Flower Hill (花の丘)
To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
