Shobujoshi Ayame Garden菖蒲城址あやめ園
Shobujoshi Ayame Garden is planted with 50 varieties and 16,000 irises. The "Ayame Festival" and "Ayame / Lavender Blue Festival" are held at the best time, and various events are held. There is a lavender field and there are shops during the event, and there are many lavender-related items such as lavender buns. A short walk will bring you to Ayame. The time when it blooms is slightly different from that of lavender, so if you go early, you can see Ayame, and if you go late, you can see lavender in full bloom.
Irises: Early June-Mid June
