Ayabe Rose Garden
1,200 roses bloom during the spring and fall
Opened in October 2010 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the municipality, Ayabe Rose Garden is a part of Gunze Square, along with the Gunze Square Specialty-product Store and Gunze Square Museums. The rose garden is a seasonal highlight that hosts blooming festivals, with the main attraction being the central flowerbed where "Anne's Rose" is planted. Ayabe is known as a city that promotes peace, and in recognition of this message of peace, the city was gifted special rose seeds from Anne Frank's father to spread the hope of worldwide peace.
