Bellagio is home to two of the very best free attractions in Las Vegas. The iconic Bellagio Fountain Show is always a must see outside of the casino. When you head inside the luxurious casino-resort just walk through the lobby to the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden.

Spring Exhibit At Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden
The Spring display at the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden is a little different from previous years. MGM Resorts is trying to obtain a casino license in Japan and they’re pulling out all the stops. The company was named the official sponsor of Major League Baseball’s Opening Series in Tokyo. Now they’re celebrating the beauty and tradition of Japan at the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden.
Sometimes corporations using one part of their business to help another part can appear to be tacky. That’s definitely not the case here. As you might imagine the spring display at Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden is as beautiful as ever.
Japanese Spring At Bellagio
The new Japanese Spring display at the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden takes guests on a cultural journey through many of the most vibrant elements associated with Japan, AKA the Land of the Rising Sun. The spring display features 65,000 fresh flowers, including cherry blossoms, thousands of fresh tulips, calla lilies, and chrysanthemums.
Upon entering the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, guests will notice the stunning 30-foot-high Osaka Castle replica that stands in the center of the West Bed. Just below the castle, a waterfall flows into a wide pond that is accented by three fountains. Those fountains, of course, are a nod to the great fountains outside of the casino.
The display also includes Butterflies…lots of butterflies. They’re a sign of good luck in love in Japanese culture. They can be found throughout the display. There are about 2,000 butterflies around the Osaka Castle. The traditional tea house honors the grace, etiquette, and hospitality of the age-old Japanese tea ceremony.
In addition to the potential new casino, the new theme for the Conservatory is also about the guests that visit the Bellagio. “Incorporating a replica of the stunning Osaka Castle into our Conservatory allows us the unique opportunity to share a piece of Japanese culture with tens of thousands of visitors each day,” said Jim Murren, Chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts International. “We aim to spark conversation and curiosity about this remarkable country and this storied castle.”
