“A symphony of flowers, wind, and light”—operating under this theme, Flower Park Kagoshima was founded in order to offer a place to get in touch with flowers and other plants, for producers and consumers to meet, and as a charming center for tourism.
Located near Cape Nagasaki-bana on the southernmost tip of Kagoshima Prefecture’s Satsuma Peninsula, the warm climate and the groves of pine trees which naturally encircle the park, this garden allows visitors a chance to enjoy plants from all around the world.
The expansive 36.5 hectare perimeter features plants from subtropical locations such as South Africa and Australia. Visitors can also experience Flower Square against the backdrop of Mt. Kaimondake, look out across Kinko Bay from the Observation Galleria, enjoy the European feel of the Western Garden and the openness of the Indoor Garden; the Greenhouse features the titan arum—the largest flower in the world—and the vibrant red sealing wax palm, along with other tropical plants.
Other facilities include the event hall, research lab, and shop.
