The flower "Jacaranda" heralds the early summer of Atami. Whether it will bloom or not, you won't know until that year. Such a slightly capricious jacaranda flower. In 1990, the two trees were donated by Atami City's international sister city, the city of Power Skys in Portugal, and now more than 100 trees have been planted. The world's three largest flowering trees, which are distributed mainly in tropical regions with perpetual summer, have now become the flowers that herald the beginning of summer in Atami. Along the coast of Atami, in June, small blue-purple jacaranda flowers in the shape of trumpets color the sky like a bouquet from Omiya Ryokuchi to Sun Beach. Every year, in early June, during the flowering season, the "Jacaranda Festival" is held. It is said that "happiness visits when flowers fall on your head", how long will jacaranda bloom this season? Please come and ♪ see the precious purple flowers * The event period is the "Light Up" Implementation period. Please note that the flowering status may vary. Period: June 1, 2024 ~ June 16, 2024 Venue name: Jacaranda promenade (around Omiya pine tree) Light-up time: 18:00~22:00 daily during the above period

Jacaranda flowers Have you ever heard of Jacaranda, a member of the family Honeysuckle from South America? As you can see in the photo, it is a deciduous tree with purple flowers blooming in bunches like grapes, and the green leaves and purple flowers are very beautiful. In Atami City, there are tall trees (looking up height) and shrubs (eye level) along National Route 135 (sidewalks between East Kaigan Town "Jacaranda Promenade" ~ Nagisa Town "Shinsui Park" and in Shinsui Park). It is said that the flowering period in Japan is June, but due to the climate, it is very rare for flowers to bloom on the mainland (planted in open ground), and there were years when they did not bloom at all in Atami, and there are trees that bloom for the second time not only in June but also in September and October. Not all trees bloom when they bloom, and some years only a few bloomed. Some trees bloom a lot, some bloom only one bunch, and some don't bloom at all...
