From the middle of April through to the beginning of May, over fifty varieties of azaleas, some 10,000 plants in all, are in bloom. Among them are old trees and plants more than four meters tall, and a group of giant Yamatsutsuji azaleas that are more than 800 years old, a variety not found elsewhere in the world.
