Huis Ten Bosch, the Dutch-style theme park in Nagasaki, Japan, is playing host to one of the largest rose festivals in Asia.
The theme park features an extensive flower field carpeted in cosmos, hydrangeas, tulips and more. From May 8 to 30, 2021, the park will be covered in around 1 million roses, marking one of the largest rose festivals in the whole of Asia.
The Rose Festival comprises of five areas, starting with the Flower Square in the middle of the park. Visitors can watch musical performances and parades take place at Flower Square. Further into the park, a 1km-long trail draped in roses runs along the canal.
A key feature of the festival is the Rose Palace, where rose gates mark the entrance, and a fragrance garden fuses the scent of different types of roses.
Another highlight is the white rose garden, featuring a tunnel of white roses. More than 2,000 species of roses are planted in the Grand Rose Garden, which is lit up after dark.
Visitors can also tuck into rose-themed food and drink, including a rose afternoon tea featuring a rose-flavoured cheesecake.
