Ashikaga Flower Park postcard movie
Movie of Ashikaga Flower Park, in Ashikaga City, Tochigi Prefecture, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours from Tokyo. I filmed with a blackmagic pocket cinema camera installed on a small rig. I recorded in ProRes HQ, with Atomos Ninja 2. As there was plenty of sun, I put a filter Kenko Pro1D ND-8 (W).
Ashikaga Flower Park is the best place to view the wisteria flowers. The purple wisteria which are called fuji in Japanese, are the highlight and it blooms in April/May. Bring a good camera, tripod, and sunblock. The weather was fantastic during this time of the year. One large fuji tree is 150 years old and its branches are supported to create a huge umbrella of blue fuji flowers.
