The pictures I am about to show you are of Japan’s largest Wisteria plant, also known as Wistaria. It is located in the Ashikaga Flower Park and while it's not the biggest in the world, many people say it is the most impressive.
The size of the 140 year old plant, which looks more like a tree, is about 1,990 square meters (half an acre) and it is held up by a complex structure of steel supports. Visitors are allowed to walk below and bask in the pink and purple light of the sun as it comes through the canopy. A truly amazing sight I am thankful I got to see.
