Mr. and Mrs Kuroki, a couple from Japan, have been married since 1956, and they were hoping to travel the country when they retired.
Sadly, just before retirement, Mrs Kuroki faced complications from diabetes and lost her vision as a result. The sudden blindness sent Mrs Kuroki into a deep depression, which kept her inside for long periods of time. She was devastated that she would not be able to spend her retirement as she had planned and felt that her life was over.
Mr Kuroki felt bad seeing his wife unhappy and began thinking of ways that he could help to improve her life. The inspiration came to him one day when he was working in his small garden and noticed a few people stopping by to take a look at the pink shibazakura flowers that he planted.
Mr Kuroki thought that if he created an even bigger garden, more visitors would come, which he hoped would help to cheer up Mrs Kuroki.
Mr Kuroki then spent the next two years planting as many flowers as he could and tending to the garden to keep them healthy. Over time, the Kuroki dairy farm in Shintomi, Japan, was turned into one of the most beautiful gardens in the country.
Eventually, the Kuroki garden became somewhat of a tourist destination, attracting visitors from all over the region. Mrs. Kuroki was not able to see the flowers, but she could smell them and imagine what the garden looked like. She also has plenty of company now, thanks to all of the visitors.

When the flowers are in bloom between the months of March and April, the Kuroki garden can see up to 7,000 in a single day.
The garden has been a popular destination in Japan for over ten years now and has brought joy into the lives of many, especially Mrs Kuroki.
