Ki no Yakata Hojuan (木の館 豊寿庵)
This renowned destination for viewing flowering plants and trees is a 15-minute drive from the Nakase Interchange on the Meihan Expressway. Weeping plums, Japanese rhododendrons, bigleaf hydrangeas, and maples grow on the facility's vast, 33 thousand-square-meter grounds. The facility boasts one of the largest collections of Japanese rhododendrons in the Tokai region, and the plants bloom from mid-April through the holidays in May. From the facility's garden observatory, visitors can take in the spectacular site of a veritable carpet of pink blossoms. The facility's nature garden has a 1,200-meter-long circular walking trail with a waterfall along its length, and here visitors can come in contact with seasonal scenery, including verdant forest in summer, fall foliage in autumn, and Japanese camellias and daffodils in winter.
