Furusawaya雪つばきの宿 古澤屋

Botanical Garden

A garden which has been planted with some 2,000 snow camellias spanning around 100 varieties. The garden is owned by Furusawa-ya, an inn situated at the foot of Mt. Kirinzan. The snow camellia, the official flower of Niigata Prefecture, was discovered and named here in Aga Town on Mt. Kirinzan in the Meiji period. Generations of the inn’s caretakers have painstakingly maintained the garden’s camellias. In most years, the flowers bloom from mid- to late April. Rivaling cherry blossoms in their beauty, they announce the arrival of spring in this region known as “snow country.” There is an entrance to the garden adjacent to the inn’s parking lot, and guests can visit the garden for free; accordingly, many staying at the inn like to take a morning stroll here.

          Found along the northwestern coast of Japan, Niigata prefecture is celebrated for its high-quality rice and breathtaking nature, most notably its spectacular mountains, whose white peaks draw in snow sports lovers from far and wide over the winter months. Hit the slopes at Yuzawa, pick out your favourite modern artist at Echigo Tsumari, or take a ferry over to Sado Island for an extra adventure.
