Kawachi Fuji Gardens in Kitakyushu, Japan ( 5 hours from Tokyo, if you take the Nozomi high speed train) is where you will find this pastel-colored fairy tale tunnel.

The gardens are home to about 150 Wisteria flowering plants spanning 20 different species (white, blue, purple, violet-blue and pink). This is the reason why the Wisteria tunnel is so colorful and graceful.  The Kawachi Wisteria Garden only opens seasonally in spring and autumn (approximately middle of April to end of May, and mid November to mid December). Its main feature are the beautiful wisteria vines planted over an 110 meter long tunnel, an 80 meter long tunnel, two domes, and a large trellis the size of several tennis courts.

Gorgeous Wisteria

May 11, 2015

In Barbara Kingsolver’s novel The Bean Trees, Turtle refers to wisteria vines as bean trees, because the pre-bloomed flower pods are shaped like beans. Later, she and Taylor learn that wisteria is a legume (i.e., is in the bean family) and that wisteria and other legumes engage in symbiotic relationships, just as the book’s characters do.

In Charlotte Perkins Gilman‘s “The Giant Wistaria,” the plant becomes both a sign of virility (“‘It groweth well, this vine thou broughtest me in the ship, my husband.'”) as well as a sign of destruction. A daughter has a child out of wedlock and her parents plan to take her back to the old country while giving the baby to a local town. The daughter hears this and ultimately, drowns the baby. She either hangs herself from the wistaria vines roots growing in the basement or they strangle her and kill her; the story doesn’t clarify.
