Akao Herb & Rose Garden

Botanical Garden
A 660 thousand square meter flower garden which makes use of the geography of Nishikigaura, a designated Place of Scenic Beauty in Atami City, Shizuoka Prefecture. The facility consists of 12 themed gardens, including an English rose garden, a herb garden, rose valley, and Japanese garden. One of the unique characteristics of the garden is its use of pale roses and other flower varieties in order to better match the scenery of the nearby ocean. The best time to visit is from May to June when some 600 varieties and 4,000 individual rose plants come into bloom. There is also an herb shop modeled after an image of English country life, a workshop, and ocean view restaurant.
