Enjoy the plum trees and autumn leaves at Atami Baien



Atami Baien

Famed for having the first blossoming plum trees each season, the Atami Baien (熱海梅園) (“Plum Garden”) first opened to visitors in 1886. It features 472 different varieties of ume (“plum”) trees, with more than 50 trees that are over 100 years old. A Plum Festival is held here from the middle of January to the start of March each year to coincide with the plum blossoms being in full bloom. In addition, the garden is a popular destination to admire the changing leaves in autumn, with the Momiji Festival held from late November to December when the colorful leaves are illuminated.
