Around Golden Week (Golden Week is a holiday week in Japan which is from the end of April to early May) the Owari Tsushima Wisteria Festival is held. Tennogawa Park is laid out around a pond.

Families, young groups, senior groups and foreign tourists see and take photos to celebrate Japanese wisteria.

Total area passes to 275 meters on 5,034 square meters, from 12 to 30 meter wide, and 12 kinds, 114 wisterias.

During the festival, the wisterias are full bloom, including nine shaku wisteria ( shaku is a measure, and one shaku is 30.3 cm.), Murasaki-Kapitan wisteria (Murasaki means purple), Shiro-Kapitan wisteria (Shiro means white), Wisteria sinensis, Wisteria floribunda 'Alba' (white Japanese wisteria), wisteria floribunda 'Murasaki Noda', Akebono wisteria, Wisteria floribunda 'Yae-kokuryu' (八重黒龍藤), wisteria floribunda 'Kokuryu wisteria', six shaku wisteria, pale red wisteria, and Japanese wisteria.

The guide said 'Yae-kokuryu' (八重黒龍藤) is very rare wisteria and only one tree in the park. He also said one week before (around 21 April) was full bloom, it looks like a bunch of grapes.
