Keisei Rose Nurseries – One of the Best Rose Gardens in Japan
A field full of roses has always been a dream to me. Since I moved to Chiba Prefecture, I found a garden I really fell in love with, this beautiful garden is “Keisei Bara En”, it is 30,000 square meters with an area that holds 10,000 roses of 1,600 varieties. You’ll be surprised of its different kinds. It is perfect for a day out with families or couples.
For me, it is like entering a place you never thought existed, a place all covered with greens, roses and wild flowers. I remember my first reaction upon stepping inside this garden, I was so amazed by how big the roses were and felt so excited, the roses have a fantastic fragrance resembling tea. It smells quite good! It is heavenly.
When you walk straight a couple of meters from the entrance, you will see a little fountain, covered with flowers. Their are some benches where you can sit and enjoy the pleasant smell and the scenery itself.
On the right side, you will see a Green House made of glass. You are allowed to enter here to enjoy the vegetation and scenery.
Keisei also has a healing garden, it is an area where you can see trees, walk through grass, wild flowers, a bridge, and a pond. I am guessing that maybe it is called a healing garden because of the silence and the peaceful feeling that this area can give you.
Imagine reading a book under this tree, you might be able to finish it in a day because of the peaceful atmosphere the nature gives or just sit there and meditate.
The garden also has a café patio where you can buy rose ice cream and eat while looking at the garden. I was surprised that there is actually a rose ice cream, you should definitely try it!
And lastly, to complete your experience, try to check out their souvenir shop which is called “Rose Shop” the name of the shop says it all, it is a themed rose shop in which all of the merchandise is about roses, from stationaries, soaps, lotions, face mist or pouches.
