Shobu-numa Koen Park has five patches of irises that bloom in early June. About 140 varieties of irises and over 8,000 irises bloom. Very impressive for a neighborhood park. Near Kita-Ayase Station on the Chiyoda Line subway.

They also hold an iris festival on the early weekend in June. I visited before the weekend festival.

I went before the weekend so it's not so crowded.

The park and irises turned out to be very nice. There are also shaded benches to sit and enjoy the flowers. A nice break from my computer screen.
