Hyakkaen means "A garden with 100 flowers that burst wildly throughout the four seasons," which is exactly what this park features. There are many kinds of flowers that bloom in in all seasons. The park started in 1830 with a collection of 360 roses, and they've been expanding their collection ever since with plants and flowers that have been immortalized in Chinese and Japanese poetry. The Japanese bush clovers along a 30-meter bamboo trellis are spectacular, and so is the flower tunnel in September. No pets allowed.
