Byakugouji's Fuji (Wisteria) Festival

Springtime in Japan isn’t only about cherry blossoms – in fact, fuji (藤 ふじ), or wisteria in English, is a beautiful purple flower that blooms in long hanging strands. People gather in many places all around Japan to witness these beautiful blossoms in person. One popular spot is Byakugouji (白毫寺) Temple in Tanba City.
