The Spring Rose Festival at Kyu-Furukawa Gardens takes place between the end of April to the end of June each year. An Autumn Rose Festival is also held later on in the year.
The gardens are famous for an early 20th-century Western-style garden (including an extensive rose collection), a Japanese garden, and a large Western-style mansion.
Along with the 200 roses and 100 varieties to view, there will also be a Spring Rose Concert on weekends and holidays, as well as a shop selling rose-related items — including ice cream.
The park will open a little earlier, at 8 a.m., from May 11 to 13.
Admittance to the garden is free for children up to middle school age and ¥150 for adults. Senior citizens can get in for ¥70.Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
