‘THE LAST COLORFUL LEAVES, THE FIRST PLUM BLOSSOM’
We visited ATAMI-BAIRIN( plum garden) to see the colorful leaves in December .
It’s said we can see colorful leaves until middle of December. This area is warmer than Tokyo because of hot current of Pacific Ocean hits here . Also it’s said ‘The first plum blossom place ‘ , the first blossom is from the end of November. There are 469 plum trees in this garden.
Yes , you can see autumn colorful leaves and spring plum blossom at the same time! The plum blossom festival has already started from 9th January until 11th March . The full bloom of plum blossom will be the end of January to middle of February.
There is a HATSUKAWA river flows in the center of the garden crossing many traditional bridges.
On the upper area there is a waterfall which we can walk through behind it , watching the garden from the back .
There are some rest areas with traditional buildings , you can enjoy Japanese green tea , foods at the patio and traditional cafe .
It takes 40 minutes by SHINKANSEN ( bullet train ) from Tokyo.
