I introduce 'night・plum blossoms・fastival'. On March 12, you can enjoy the candle night and skyrockets set off from Senba Lake as well as the illuminated plum trees. Why don't you come to plum festival's finale in Mito to feel the fantastic night of early spring?


Spring in Mito is a plum blossoms festival of Kairaku-en. In the large garden, a gallery of plum blossoms in all their glory is excellent which is like a large maze. On March 12, they'll set off skyrockets at the night festival, you must come to Mito to feel the spring!

The cosmos at Kairakuen Garden's addition has reached the best to see. You can see colorful cosmos against the background of a famous house Kobun-tei.

Kairakuen is one of the three best gardens in Japan. Its highlight is, of course, the fine plum trees. There're as many as 300 plum trees, and what's more, 100 kinds! It's the most impressive plum blossom garden in the quality and also amount!◎Access: extraordinary Kairakuen Station opens for train during the season of plum blossoms. For cars, the parking area is available.
