From early February to mid-March, the red and white blossoms of about 40,000 ume (plum) trees run riot like a “carpet of ume” all over the pediment, an area of nine hectares. The park becomes enveloped in the fragrance of ume. Reflections of seasonal blooms in the park’s streams and ponds can be enjoyed along the walking trails, providing a chance to relax leisurely while savoring the season. What do you say to the carefree experience of being in nature, such as observing creatures in the brooks, viewing seasonal flowers and bird-watching?
