Sankeien Garden Early Morning Lotus Viewing 2018

Sankeien Garden Early Morning Lotus Viewing 2018

The beautiful and fragrant Lotus flower opens in the morning and petals close in the afternoon. The best time of the day to view the flowers in full bloom is around 7 a.m. The flowers begin to close from around 9 a.m. and they are fully shut by noon.

The Lotus plant is commonly cultivated in the water gardens with its roots firmly in the mud with its pure white and pink flower raised above the water. This is why it is often symbolized as purity, majesty, grace and serenity. During the lotus blossoming season, Sankeien Garden opens at 6 a.m. for visitors to see the flowers in full bloom in the refreshing morning air. The visitors can also enjoy making masks from lotus leaves.
