  • Visit 6/4 and when you come to the two-year Buri name location also being changed and were no vestiges of the old. Is completely redesigned. Now feel the boat park is different from earlier. Rowers also seems rejuvenated. Here is the main Japanese IRIS, but overwhelmingly more widely. Because there is a Plaza in lawn in the back may be good children.

  • Visit H29.06/03 16 o'clock. Admission, and pay the entrance fee ¥ 800. (IRIS Festival period in charge) is approximately 400 species 1500000 this IRIS chivalrously in bloom 2-minute. What's this!? If local people come from far away, Park might have been the awful 口惜shikat. No... Even the locals pay 800 yen, that goes by bellows. 6/10 when is the best time to visit? And count the sales of today's gift shop, sold mood is the entire Park and Cafe are closed. Peak attendance of ' 89 years 228000 people, renewed and hard, but the better don't go up because the ability to attract customers. Effort needs to be the last year brought more than visitors number 61000 people uncertain of what?

  • IRIS not blooming at all if you want before entering the Wisteria was blooming five minutes, some in 5 minutes to bloom is 9% of the total no bloom does not. Pay the admission fee: ¥ 600, came out in 10 minutes. Bloom peeking through a gap in the fence, make sure your entry.
