Atsumi's Rose Garden

Atsumi onsen baraen



No less than 90 varieties and 3000 roses flower from June to October in Atsumi's rose garden. The peak season for appreciating the roses is in June. During that month, a local ice cream artist sells rose-shaped sorbets, and a "bara-matsuri" ("rose festival") is organized by the onsen villagers. The rose garden circles the lower Kumano shrine. The main Kumano shrine can be accessed through the Mt. Atsumi hiking trail.
