The Lake and Marshes of Aburagafuchi (Aburagafuchi Kosho) is the largest of such geographical features in Aichi Prefecture. At the park located on its northern extreme, covering to an area of about 18,000 square-meters, there's a garden with about 13,000 Hana-Shobu Iris, symbol flower of the city. The garden includes 80 species of the delicate flowers and made the city famous for its beauty.
Annually from late May to mid-June, one of the major events of the city takes place, the "Hana-Shobu Iris Festival", and on weekends, a series of events such as stage shows, photo contest, tea ceremonies are held in order to entertain the visitors. At evenings, until 9:00 PM, artificial illumination is lit up and turns the place into a fantastic sightseeing spot.

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.
