Rokko Alpine Botanical Garden

Rokko Alpine Botanical Garden

Opened in 1933, the Rokko Alpine Botanical Garden has a rich history, and in 1955 was designated as a museum-equivalent facility. It sits at 865 meters above sea level, with an average temperature of just 9 degrees Celsius, which is similar to the southern region of Hokkaido. Amidst these favorable conditions, approximately 1,500 species—predominantly alpine and cold-climate plants, as well as the native plants of Mt. Rokko—are cultivated across 50,000 square meters of land. Visitors can see these plants in conditions similar to their natural state all year round—skunk cabbage in March and April, Japanese black lilies and primrose in May, alpine plants such as dicentra and edelweiss in June, hydrangea and day lilies in July, fringed orchids in August, and wild grasses such as aconite, as well as autumn leaves, from September onwards.
