A Beautiful Iris Garden

The Kamo Shrine is believed to have been built in the year 729 CE, and as such has deep traditions and a long history. It is said that when Tokugawa Ieyasu and his armies marched to Enshu, and when heading for the Battle of Nagashino, he stopped by this shrine and prayed. At the entrance to the shrine there's a vast garden with about 37,000 stubs of Hana-Shobu Irises of over 300 species. From late May to mid-June, the Hana-Shobu Iris Festival is held to celebrate the blooming flowers.

During the festival's period, lots of events held on weekends are scheduled to entertain the visitors, such as Local Farmers and Producers Market, Street Performer Shows, Flower and Plans Market and much more (some attractions - such as tea serving and horse riding - require fee).

While in most parts of the world there’s only the name “iris” for any flower of that family of species, Japan’s irises have distinct names for the most popular ones, the most popular ones being “hana-shobu,” with its yellowish hues near the petal base, the “ayame,” with its intricate petal patterns, and the “kakitsubata,” with the whitish, delicate hues.
