Sprawling over 66 hectares, this larger flower garden is situated on a hilltop overlooking the sea, with the azure waters of Sagami Bay as its backdrop. It’s designed around 12 themed gardens where you can enjoy seasonal blooms of roses, tulips and cherry blossoms, together with a magnificent herb garden that’s a feast for the senses. While visiting the Akao Herb & Rose Garden, take time to admire the Coeda House, a coffee shop that was designed by Sakai R&D using layered cypress logs. Enjoy the spectacular views with a coffee and sweet treat, such as their signature rose ice cream.
