While the nation aspires to witness an influx of tourism to boost its economy, one man in Japan does so in a way beyond your imagination- by planting the most romantic flower garden in the world!
The couple always dreamed of travelling around Japan during their retirement. Unfortunately, Mr. Kuroki’s wife Yasuko lost her vision at the age of 52. About a quarter of a century later, her husband wanted to do something to help her overcome her loneliness.

Today, the beautiful Shibazakura flowers, or moss phlox, are the highlight of his plot of land in Shintomi town, located along Miyazaki prefecture. It wasn’t the gorgeous sight of the bright pink colors that struck him most, but the fragrant aroma which he knew would put a smile on his wife’s face every day!
