Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you find yourself in the Osaka or Kobe reason, it's an absolute necessity to come to this park. It's a must for anyone who loves nature, parks or architecture. The park is meticulously well kept, the flowers are beautiful, it's huge and while there were quite a few people, it felt peaceful. The real treat of the park is the neighboring building - the structure by Tadao Ando.

When we came there were varying ways people suggested getting there. We took a rapid train from Osaka Station to Akashi Station (40min) and from there went to a pier and took a really fun, too-short boat ride (15min) with a great view of the famous Akashi Kaikyo bridge to Awaji Island. The boat was only ¥500 yen per person. We then rented bicycles and it was a quick 10 minute ride along the coast to the park.

Enjoy!

I absolutely loved the 90 minutes I walked there. I did it the last day of my trip. I wished I did the first day so I would go every morning as I was staying in Westin near by.

Part of the Yumebutai area, right in front of the Westin Hotel and the Botanical Garden. If you leave the Botanical Garden exit, walk toward the water, you will reach the gate of the Kaikyo National Government Park.

Early June is off season, they are busy removing and replanting the flowers. Just finished planting the sunflowers and removing the various poppies.

If you come during one of the flower seasons, it would probably be amazing but coming off season as we did, it was a nice walk but not worth the price of admission. The ridge area where you can watch the water is very beautiful. There is some sort of little water park which only operates during certain times in the summer.

If we were to come back, we would first confirm that it is peak season, if only to see the flower exhibits.

Cost is 410 yen per person. Park closes at 6 pm.

I visited the park twice because their ticket is valid for one day. It looked like Holland! Very beautiful tulips were everywhere. Be sure to check it out.

The plant museum was magnificent and such an unexpected surprise. Every way you looked there were magnificent displays of flowers and plants from all over the world, all different environments within this huge glass "museum". This was only one part of this impressive park. Great for a garden lover! In fact, a must.

Didn’t expect to see this Nenophila Harmony in this park. I went to Hitachj Park in Kanto to see it last year. What a wonderful day with beautiful flowers. Not recommend to go during golden week because it takes more than 3 hours instead of one hour and a half from my place to reach the park due to traffic jam.

Came from Osaka to visit the park as saw in website and kids were longing to have fun in the playground.
Quite disappointed, most slides are not slippery but slow. We only saw one other family in the whole garden. The park closes at 4:30 pm. We drive and the toll fee from Osaka to here was more than ¥2400 yen one way.... it's really expensive. Don't recommend if travel all the way here only to visit the park. But we haven't walked around the whole park. Flowers are beautiful and the scene is relaxing if someone looks for such.

Though a bit contrived, this park contrasts with the hanasajiki uphill in Awaji in the sense that you can see mankind's work in making things beautiful. The tulips in spring are very nice.

The park is set up by the national government in 2002, on the site where Flower EXPO was organized in 2000. As such, it covers a sizable area (in Japanese standard) and it features flower displays in the open, and in a closed facility, throughout the year. This facility is named “Kiseki-no-hoshi botanical museum,” perhaps, because it housed a rare floral collection at the time of the EXPO (“Kiseki-no-hoshi” means “miraculous star” in English translation, and it refers to the Earth). This facility annually organizes six floral exhibitions at different times, starting with the very popular orchid exhibition. Some pictures are attached so that one can appreciate the facility’s rather distinctive displays of flowers, and why I think it is really a gardening gallery. As such, visitors with interest in Japanese-style compact gardening can easily spend enjoyable few hours in the facility.
The access to the site by public transportation is easy if one starts from Kobe, and it will be a good diversion for visitors who find the city rather overcrowded.
