A great festival of "hana-shobu" irises!

With the early summer rainy season comes the time for "hana-shobu" irises blooming everywhere. And in the city of Chiryu, at the Chiryu Park, the "Hana-Shobu Festival" is held in mid-June, with lots of fun and entertainment during the weekends.

Chiryu Park Hana-Shobu Iris Festival (Hana-Shobu Matsuri)

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. Besides the "hana-shobu" blooming now, with its yellowish hues near the petal base, there's also the "ayame", with its intricate petal patterns, and the "kakitsubata", with the whitish hues.

The Chiryu Park is a famous place due to the irises that were given as gifts by the Meiji Emperor and Empress, which are the main reason for the great crowds that visit the festival every year. Besides the gorgeous flowers, you'll also be able to see cultural events, tea parties, take photos and see traditional "karakuri" mechanized dolls. Also, delicious meals await at the park's shop.
