The Japanese wisteria are one of the prime attractions of  Ashikaga Flower Park. The Japanese love flowers, and wisteria are among their favorites. Wisteria are called fuji in Japanese, like Mt. Fuji. The purple waterfalls of wisteria reaching the height of a six-storey home, which produce fragrant flowers, gathered in the overhanging brush. there are 4 huge Japanese wisterias (fuji), one of them is 140 year old and wide spread of branch tree.

The fuji in Ashikaga Flower Park are usually in full bloom in the beginning of May, one to two weeks later than the fuji of Tokyo. Because Ashikaga Flower Park is considered one of the best spots to view fuji flowers in Japan, the park can be very crowded even on weekdays during the peak season.
