Konan-City Mandaraji Park
A park with unmissable peony flowers blossoming along with 11 kinds of wisteria
In the first half of the 14th century Mandaraji Temple, a famous spot in Owari Area, was built at the request of Emperor Godaigo. In 1970, Mandaraji Temple donated a section of its land to Konan City, and the donated part, now under city management, became the famous wisteria spot of Mandaraji Park. Several species of wisteria, from early blooming to late blooming variations, populate the garden, bestowing to the place the nickname of "Wisteria of Mandaraji Temple". The trees in full bloom during the transition from spring to early summer are a spectacular sight to behold, and became the center of the Wisteria Fuji Festival, an event held annually from late April to early May. About the same period, some 200 gorgeous peonies bloom concurrently, adding to the eye candy provided by the place. Varied events are held at the festival, such as the Yomemi Festival, attracting crowds of tourists incoming not only from neighboring areas, but also from other prefectures.
