For both flower enthusiasts and photographers, the Hinoyama Koen Park Turkish Tulip Garden in Yamaguchi Prefecture is a must-see. Every year, new patterns are added to the tulip fields, where several varieties of tulips are arranged in lines and curves to form a vibrant sea of blooms.
The garden, which bears Orhan Suyolcu’s name in honour of the Turkish aviator, stands for goodwill between Turkey and Japan. The garden, which is perched on a hill with a beautiful view of the Kanmon Straits that separate Honshu and Kyushu, is also nearby.
It was unveiled in 2009 to display more than 40,000 tulips that Shimonoseki’s sister city, Istanbul, gave as a token of friendship. Each year, the lovely flowers bloom from early to mid-April, adding a burst of colour to the park.
