If you like roses the place to be in Shizuoka Prefecture is the Shimada City Roses Hill Park as it is open all year!
The access is quite easy, 10 minutes by car or by bus from Shimada JR Station!
Entrance fees are reasonable and discounts are offered to kids and groups!
It is certainly larger than expected but very comfortable ro stroll through!
All amenities are provided, especially clean washrooms!
By fine weather it is the ideal place to relax by yourself, friends or family!
As I said it is bigger than expected and even if it rains you can always concentrate on the very wide greenhouse!
Even kids will enjoy it!
Let’s walk around! Hedges everywhere!
The best times of the year are during the Spring and Autumn Festivals, but specialists will find something to observe and study all year round!
Varieties come from all over the World and Japan, including these Charleston roses inviting you to a dance!
Inside the greenhouse! The staff and gardeners will kindly answer your questions!
Take your time! In any case there is also a cafeteria and souvenir shop!
These will make you blush! LOL
Elegant and cute!
Where were the kids by the way?
Great pictures to take, even under the rain!
Will certainly come back again!
