You will be able to see various seasonal flowers such as camellia in winter, cherry blossom flowers and violet in spring, hydrangea during the rainy season, clematis etc., in our Tsubaki-Hana garden. This is also the only place you can appreciate the wide panoramic combination of sea and Mt. Fuji.
Come and enjoy the beauty of our flowers in our garden that is over 17.5 hector large and chosen as the “International Camellia Gardens of Excellence” in February 2016.
After 30 years of on his own work, the village mayor Mr. Yamashita plant 2,000 camellia trees of 400 different varieties, in this large garden. It is only 10mn driving form the Motomachi harbor, Okada harbor or Ooshima airport.
It was the last words of his camellia enthusiast brother who died very young, that brought Mr. Yamashita to start his garden. He started his own study, and after years of research and failures he finally attained this huge garden we can see today.
