RSK ROSE GARDEN

One of Japan's leading rose gardens featuring 1 million blooming
roses representing about 400 species and 15,000 rosebushes.

Since opening in 1974, RSK Rose Garden has built a name for itself as one of Japan's leading rose gardens. Concentric circular beds fill the garden's nearly 30,000 square meters with a sea of roses representing 400 species and 15,000 rosebushes, transforming the garden with a riot of color during the peak blooming seasons in the spring and fall. Its overwhelming beauty is enough to make visitors feel they have wandered off into a rose paradise.

 

Most roses bloom throughout the four seasons, but the garden employs cultivation and management practices designed to allow visitors to enjoy the most beautiful roses twice each year: from mid May to mid June during the spring, and from mid October to late November during the fall. We spare no effort to ensure visitors' ability to enjoy the most beautiful and fragrant flowers at all times, and we invite you to visit the garden to experience the remarkable results for yourself.

 

We have also planted a selection of seasonal flowering plants and trees in the rose garden's outer area for visitors' year-round pleasure.

Theme gardens

You'll also enjoy a number of special gardens designed to showcase the special appeal of roses, including the Royal Garden, which features roses that are dedicated to, or named for, royalty and celebrities from around the world; the Fragrance Garden, which features roses that are especially aromatic; and the English Garden, which features representative species that British grower David Austin created by hybridizing old and modern roses to augment the shape and fragrance of old roses with the perpetual, multiflorous characteristics of modern varieties.

Japanese flowering plants and trees

You can also enjoy a garden of seasonal flowering plants and trees around the outside perimeter of the rose beds, including such species as Japanese apricot, Christmas rose, cherry, double-flowering cherry, Japanese tree peony, Japanese iris, field and mountain grasses, Japanese wisteria, azalea, dogwood, hydrangea,
and Oga lotus.
