Kakitsubata, Rabbit-ear Iris at Ohtanosawa

May 4, 2018

 

Close to the Kamigamo Shrine (上賀茂神社), there is Ohta shrine (大田神社) which enshrines a god whose blessings are for longevity, healing illness, relationship, and performing arts. Since the Heian (平安) period, the shrine has been famous for the cluster of Kakitsubat (カキツバタ, Rabbit-ear Iris) on the premises, which is designated as a national treasure of Japan. 

Every year in this season, the beautiful purple flowers create a breathtaking view. Fujiwara Toshinari (藤原俊成), a Heian poet, the father of the famous poet Fujiwara no Teika (藤原定家), once has composed a famous poem about the flowers here.

It's going to be the perfect season to see Kakitsubata flowers, which has been enchanting Japanese people's hearts since long long time ago.
