13) Wisteria Flower Tunnel, Japan
Walking through this wide tunnel dripping in flowers is like passing through the entrance into magical fairy-tale. The Kawachi Fuji Gardens in Kitakyushu, Japan is adorned in Wisteria, a type of hanging plant that produces beautiful drooping flowers from its vines. Once through the gates you’ll find several tunnels draped in countless Wisteria plants covering an area of 10,000 square meters. Visitors will immediately slip into the “Zen-zone,” once they smell the floral fragrance and wander through the enchanted passageways. The garden has been open since 1977, but be sure to check the calendar before you go. The tunnel opens when the flowers bloom and shuts down when autumn begins, and weather turns colder. Therefore, the spring months are said to be the best months to visit. There’s also a festival to celebrate the Wisteria bloom at the end of April.
