Suigo Itako Ayame-en, Itako Riverside Iris Park (Located in Itako City)

Recommended Spot

In early summer, various kinds of irises are in bloom in this garden. From late May to late June the Iris Festival is annually held in this area. At the festival, a must-see event is 'Yomeiri-bune' (a bride on a boat), where a bride is congratulated by many people. Other events such as Ayame-odori, a dance show by women in kimono, and an excursion in a robune (a rowboat), are enjoyable, too.
