Tajima Highlands Botanical Gardens

Use the power of nature to refresh
your body and soul.

The large estate of 17 hectares is located 650 meters above sea level. The gardens now contain more than 2,000 natural plant species. You will enjoy seeing the seasonal flowers and trees. About 5,000 tons of water gush out per day near “Wachi no Ookatsura,” a giant Japanese Judas tree in the garden. You must try drinking the water, which is called, “Katsura no Sen’nensui.” You may also enjoy the programs.
