Jindai Botanical Garden Rose Festival 2020
If you need a break from busy Tokyo, the Jindai Botanical Garden’s rose festival is calling you. With 5200 rose plants of 400 different types, this is an excellent place for flower lovers. With so much color, they won’t disappoint.
For this type of event, you could spend many hours photographing there. I took about four hundred pictures under the warm sun and beautiful skies. It was another great day in the autumn of 2020. Actually, we had quite a lot of rain that year, but the sunny days were been incredible.
With so many English and international roses to look at, time flew by in an instant. Jindai is no simple backyard rose garden. The staff put in many hours looking after it.
And it is a genuinely lovely place to walk around. The garden is a huge rectangle with a greenhouse at one end and a covered patio-type area at the other. In the middle are some fountains. The roses get the rest of the space! It is my image of what an English garden should look like.
Without a doubt, Jindai has the best rose garden in Tokyo. And it isn’t only about looking at the flowers. There are many stalls too. They have a variety of different rose plants for sale. If you are lucky, you’ll find a staff who speaks English and can offer advice about caring for rose bushes.
The number of photographers on the day surprised me. It shouldn’t have. I know only too well how much the Japanese like photography and garden roses! They seemed so serious about the event.
Jindai Botanical Garden rose festival is bigger than the one at Kyu-Furukawa Gardens. To be honest, it is much better too, but Jindai does specialize in flowers. The other is a garden attached to a house and is much smaller. I recommend both.
