Tulip Island Party in Awaji Island!

Thank you very much for coming to Kansai area★
But, why not go to the Awaji Island?!

It's located between Hyogo and Tokushima prefecture.
Small island, but worth to visit, especially in spring!

My favorite place is "Akashi Kaikyo National Government Park"★☆★
It's not just a park, it's a paradise of flowers!
About 600 thousand pieces and 300kinds of flowers bloom by May 29.
Tulips are wonderful, livingstonedaisies are amazing..! ( Picture is above)
Fee : 400yen

Next to this park, there is "The Miracle Planet Museum of plants".
It's also interesting, you can see the art of plants!
Rose festival is held from Apr 23 ( Sat) to May 31 (Tue) there.
Fee: 600yen (Combined ticket for the park is available)

If you have time, I recommend going to Sumoto Spa and see the Naruto straits.

Easy access from Osaka! Please take a high-way bus at Osaka station.
One way is 1200yen ~

I LOVE this island!!!!
Now you wanna go, right? :)
