Shobu Castle Ruins Iris Garden (菖蒲城趾あやめ園)

Other places famous for flowers

Shobu Castle was built on the forefront of the conflict between the Uesugi Clan, the Kanto Kanrei or shogun's deputy in the Kanto region, and the Kaneda family, retainers of Ashikaga Shigeuji who was the Kamakura Kubo, a self-proclaimed title to be equivalent to Shogun. It is now the site of the Shobu Castle Ruins Iris Garden which boasts nearly 16,000 Japanese irises that come into bloom between early and mid-June. Tourists flock to the area for the Ayame (Iris) and Lavender Blue Festival.

          Eclipsed by neighboring Tokyo, Saitama is often branded as the sleepy suburbs. However, look a little deeper and you'll uncover quaint towns bursting with history and crafts from the kurazukuri Edo-period clay houses of Kawagoe to the ancient tree-enveloped temples of Chichibu.
