Hi,

We will be travelling on MAY 15, 2017 MONDAY, is there still Wisteria blooms by that time? Or should we just skip going there. Travelling from Osaka to Fukuoka just for the Wisteria tunnel. :)

It's unlikely to see the bloom, especially in its peak, on 15th May. The garden closed on 15th, which was Sunday, in 2016 wisteria season.

May 15, 2017 is a Monday.

No more Wisteria on that day?

Sunday tends to be the last day. It's hard to predict. When the bloom is over, the garden is closed. It is a personal property.

Today's admission was advance ticket only. Admission is now 1,000 yen (advance ticket + 500 yen cash). It seems the garden rents temporary car park nearby, probably from an onsen facility.
