The touching, true love story of two lovers that gave rise to a large rose garden in the city of Hamamatsu, Shizuoka. A fairy tale that enchants visitors who come to the place to enjoy the flowers.
The rose garden, named Bara no Miyako-en (ばらの都苑), opened in mid-May 2000 in honor of his wife Miyako. Mr. Kazuyuki Amano single-handedly planted 1.500 roses of 300 different species of colors in the field in gratitude to his wife, who died of lung cancer.
Mr. Amano decided to build the garden shortly before his wife’s death at age 49. Life has taught the true feeling of love.
He said Ms. Miyako struggled to raise her three daughters, as well as run a tea plantation and help with the family business. In gratitude for all these years of dedication, Mr. Amano got rid of the tea plantation to create a beautiful and beautiful rose garden on the 2.300 square meter site, which can be visited free of charge.
This is how barako-em (ROSE GARDEN) was born, so that his great love could continue to smell the scent of fragrant roses, a garden with beautiful roses that has become a very popular place for photographers to take pictures of weddings, maternity photos, children, models, etc…
The first wedding ceremony held here in the garden was on May 23, 2015. For the beauty of the garden and the large three-dimensional sculptures colored with roses, such as castles, bridges, origami cranes, fascinating structures in the garden.
There are also “love” and “bond” letters made of roses in the three-dimensional structure of the garden, but we can only see it when the roses are in full bloom.
The garden is big, and not just roses, but weeping peaches in April, lilies in June, and lots of Christmas roses are planted.
An unforgettable tour full of love.
