The spring rose festival is held annually at the end of May to early June. However, in 2020 they didn’t open their garden on account of the State of Emergency. But they did open it in spring of 2021. And more good news – they are also opening it for Autumn too. However, it will be for a slightly shorter period than normal – from October 20th to October 31st.

There is free entry to the rose gardens for the autumn roses, but for the spring rose festival there is a cover charge of 300 yen for adults. In spring the garden opens from 9 am to 4 pm during the period of the festival. In autumn the garden is open from 9 am to 3 pm.

There are approximately 1500 roses of 350 varieties in the 2800 square meter rose garden in Moroyama.

The Rose Garden Takinoiri is in Moroyama, which is a beautiful rural area of Saitama. Moroyama, perhaps, is best known for its Yabusame. The garden was first opened in 2000, but it moved location and reopened as it is today in 2009.

You can read more about the garden and the area on this blog post written after visiting the garden in May 2021.

Access Rose Garden Takinori

The garden is located about a 25 to 30 minutes drive from both the Tsurugashima Interchange on the Kanetsu expressway and the Ken-o Tsurugashima interchange on the ken-o expressway. The garden doesn’t come up in most car navigation systems, but if you put in either Morobito no Kan or Yuzu No Sato Campsite you can find your way to the garden. There is free parking for 100 cars.

By public transport its a bit tricky. There is only a very infrequent town loop bus that goes on weekdays and the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month. You can get the timetable here (Japanese language only). Alternatively, you can walk from the train station, it takes about 35 minutes on foot from Moro Station on the Hachioji line. You can also walk from Higashi moro Station on the Tobu Ogose line. It takes about 45 minutes.
