Hundreds of Azaleas This park contains 400 azaleas in six varieties that flower from mid to late April. Among them is Nagiso Azaleas, a rare variety unique to this region. The park was designated a natural monument in 1975; the Nagiso Azaleas was designated the official flower of Nagiso in 1990. The park offers magnificent views northeast up the valley to the nearly 3,000-meter-high Mt. Kiso, down the valley to the Momosuke Bridge, and across the valley to the 1,676-meter Mt. Nagiso.
