With 472 trees of 59 varieties, some over a century old, Atami Plum Garden provides a true smorgasbord of plum trees. Famous for some of the earliest plum blossoms in Japan, as well as an abundance of red maple leaves in fall, the garden surrounds a stream with a small waterfall. Opened in 1886, the plum grove dotted with maple trees and azaleas nowadays also features an art gallery and a Korean garden. A huge ancient camphor tree overshadows a small temple, where devotees come to pray for help with alcoholism. Geisha performances, folk songs, and sweet sake festivals occur during the blooming season, from January to March. Take a bus or walk 15 minutes uphill from Kinomiya station to reach the garden. A visit to Atami Plum Garden represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Atami trip itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

The grounds were much more expansive than we had expected, and despite the light rain, we really enjoyed wandering through the trees and ended up spending more time there than we had planned. (I don't seem to be able to add comments to the photos, so the picture of the building below is of what I felt were very tastefully designed washrooms.)
Very nice park to visit for plum trees season normally in February thru beginning March. Very beautiful place. Museum is also very interesting.
