Hiroshima Rose Festival 🌹

Hello everyone! It's Chippy from J Hoppers Hiroshima.

I can't believe how fast it is to turn to be spring from the autumn this year! It's been super hot these days and it even feels like we skipped the spring!

In Japan, after cherry blossoms fell, it's the season for ROSES!!

There will be a "Rose Festival" taken place at the Hiroshima Botanical Garden from next week!
The rose garden covers 1600 square meters and contains 570 different varieties of rose. With other parts of the gardens there are about 850 varieties on display in total including pure bred roses, modern roses, and some of them are created in Hiroshima and even named after Hiroshima.

They will also hold some workshops such as making wreaths of flowers and forming roses out of soft clay (clay craft) during the period. Some flower shops and food stalls will come to warm up the festival too!

It only takes about 40 minutes by bus departing from the Bus Center which is 15 minutes from J Hoppers.
If you feel like spending your time on relaxing surrounded by beautiful nature rather than being in a crowd in the city center, this place will be the best spot for you!
