Arrival at Oshima Airport





  • Inspection of Oshima Park

    She marveled at the vastness of the garden and the abundant species and cultivars.
    Watching an exhibition in the Camellia Pavilion, where visitors can learn more about camellias, she was so impressed as to say that Oshima Park has everything for camellias.



  • Inspection of Oshima Senior High School

    The students explained to her about the garden and its camellias in English and held a tea ceremony outside to entertain her and two other members of the ICS.
    She said that she had been deeply impressed by the devotion of the young students to learning about camellias.
