Autumn Rose Festival (Bara Festa)
7-31 October 2017
Jindai Botanical Garden
Jindai Botanical Garden, located near Jindai-ji Temple in western Tokyo, is the largest botanical garden in the capital, with some 100 thousand plants of 4,800 species grown on a site of about 480,000 square meters. A variety of flowers blossom throughout the year.
This garden is particularly known for its award winning Rose Garden. The biannual Rose Festival held there in spring and autumn attracts many visitors and enthusiasts. In autumn, some 5,000 roses of 300 species go into bloom, filling the air with sweet fragrance.
During this popular festival, a series of events will be held, such as concerts, workshops and guided tours. On weekends and holidays, the Rose Garden will be opened earlier than usual, in the morning when the scent of roses is most intense.
Take time to smell the roses!
