An Endless Flower Paradise - Visiting some of the beautiful Flower parks in Japan.
Tulips has bewitched the people of Japan since their introduction at the beginning of the 20th century and has been produced mainly in Niigata and Toyama where sixty-seven million bulbs are produced annually. The Echigo Hillside Park near the city of Nagaoka is a wonderful experience for people of all ages. By the time the spring season is in full swing, the “Flower Hill” is swathed in red, pink, purple, orange and yellow blooms, a sight that truly looks like something out of The Wizard of Oz. I personally like tulips because they are a more uniquely shaped flower, and their striking colors of the flowering bulbs is a overwhelmingly beautiful sight to see, with each color of the tulip having a positive symbolic meaning behind it.
