Irises start blooming in early summer under the strong sun shine by water. The flower has two Japanese names, one is ayame and another one is Shobu. In general, Japanese likes to call it Shobu because it has the same pronuncication of Shobu that means competition. Therefore, samurais loved this flower and it used to decorate the boy's festival called Tango no Sekku held in May 5th. Koiwa Iris Garden in Edogawaku, Mizumoto Koen Park and Horikiri Iris Garden in Katsushikaku are popular spots for seeing irises and they have Shobu Matsuri (Iris Festivals) in June. And in Ichikawa, yellow irises are seen in Omachi Nature Observation park and Junsaiike Pond Park.
In this page, some noted spots having irises in them are introduced. Why don't you visit them to enjoy seeing the irises?
