We will introduce the wisteria at Kazahaya no Sato, the first flower garden in Japan to adopt "horticultural welfare."

Latest update :


Hello. I am a staff member specializing in updating Toyoko Inn Tsu Station West Exit MATCA.

This time, I will be talking about Kazahaya no Sato in Tsu City, Mie Prefecture.


What is Kazahaya no Sato?

Kazahaya no Sato is a flower garden located in Hisaihekicho, Tsu City, Mie Prefecture. It is the first facility in Japan to introduce "horticultural welfare," and the facility staff work together with people with disabilities to manage the seasonal flowers (plum, wisteria, and hydrangea).

The name Kazahaya no Sato comes from the Kazahayaike pond located within the facility. It is said that kappa (water lions) live in this pond, and there is a sign on the premises that reads "Beware of kappa." But do they really exist...?

This time, we'll talk about wisteria flowers.

How to get to Kazahaya no Sato

Kazahaya no Sato can be reached in about 25 minutes by car or taxi from the hotel.

There are three parking lots in total, and the third parking lot near Kazahaya Pond is open only on weekends. Parking is free.

The nearest station is Hisai Station. You can get there by local or express train from Tsu Station. A free shuttle bus is available during the Flower Festival. For more information, click here .

The park has many slopes and grass, so we recommend wearing comfortable sneakers.

Kazahaya Village Wisteria Festival

The Wisteria Festival is held from late April to early May. For details on the flowering status and dates, please check the official website .

Just past the ticket booth in the park, there is a place called "Chozu" where seasonal flowers are floated. This is called "Hanachozu" (Flower Chozu).

It was made by the facility's staff, and you can watch videos of how the flower water basin is made on the facility's official Instagram , Facebook , and X.

This wisteria is called "Yaekokuryuu Fuji" and looks a bit like grapes.

If you look up at the sky from under the large wisteria trellis, the sky looks like a heart. So cute (^^♪

There is a free foot bath in the park where you can relax your tired feet after a day of walking.

Even if you forget your towel, you don't have to worry because Kazahaya no Sato original towels are sold for 100 yen each (^^♪
