Takitani Shoubu Garden (Nara)

Today I went to Takitani Hanashoubu Garden in Nara.
There are more than 600 species of Japanese iris in this garden,
one of the biggest iris garden in West Japan.
Every year,so many tourists visit this garden in June.
They are breathtaking!
Hope you'll enjoy these photos. 
I also found lotus flowers in the pond.
They're so lovely!


  1. Oooooh, so many Irises! I love Iris *__* I want to fly over to Japan and pick a few for my garden XD And I'd take a Lotus with me too!
    I totally envy you for having access to such beautiful gardens...
