Tochigi Prefecture, located in the north of the Kanto region in the central part of Honshu island, is home to many famous spots for seeing flowers. It is recommended to go between April and May, the season when the flowers are the most beautiful. They bloom all over, from downtown to the highlands and lakes between mountains. Here we will present a journey to enjoy this banquet of flowers that you can only find in the abundant nature of Tochigi.
