What is Ipponki Park?

Ipponki Park was opened as a place of relaxation for the citizens in 1984. The late Mr. Kikuo Kuroiwa, a former high school teacher, donated 179 rose seedlings of 172 varieties that he had been growing at his home to Nakano City, and they were transplanted to Ipponki Park. Now, the park has become famous as one of the prefecture's leading rose gardens in terms of the variety and number of roses.

In the center of the park is the old Nakano Elementary School building, a typical example of Western-style architecture from the mid-Meiji period that was built in 1896 and relocated to coincide with the opening of Ipponki Park in 1984. In 2002, under the supervision of British horticulture expert Kay Yamada, the park was expanded and renovated to create a park space based on the concept of "an English garden with various sights throughout the four seasons" with a rose theme.

Currently, you can enjoy 3,000 roses of 850 varieties, as well as seasonal flowers such as cherry blossoms. Many rose lovers and tourists from inside and outside the prefecture visit the gardens, especially during the Rose Festival.

About the Shinshu Nakano Rose Festival

During the period, the sweet scent of roses will fill the air throughout the garden, and you can enjoy performances by violinists and local elementary school students, as well as rose seedlings, potted plants, and cut flowers, as well as sales booths for local Nakano products.
