Iriya Asagao Matsuri - Morning Glory Flower Festivalの写真1

2018.7.6(Fri) - 2018.7.8(Sun)

In the early Meiji period (1868-1912), a dozen gardeners were cultivating morning glories in Iriya. Every year they produced bigger flowers and unusual breeds making Iriya morning glories very popular. With growing urbanization this stopped in 1913. In 1948 a team of locals revived the summer tradition and brought back the Iriya Morning Glory Flower Festival.
