The Rose Festival attracts visitors from all over the world who are attracted by more than 1 million roses and there are around 1000 different varieties which are spread out all over the town in a splendid and tasteful presentation. The night time light up was as spectacular as anything I have seen recently, the direct light on the roses really showed their natural hues to perfection.
For me, who isn't a true gardener of sorts, just to stroll around and check out all the different colors and species of Roses was a real eye opener. In some ways i thought i should try and be more active in the garden and will endeavour to do so in the future. As for the real enthusiasts, I marveled at the amount of people who came, the amount of photographs they took and their passion for all things flowers. Truly an inspirational experience!!
A must for any garden and especially flower lover who may find themselves in Nagasaki at the beginning of June.
