Hanakatsumi Garden

In Agui, the original species of Japanese Iris "Iris ensanta" is called "Hanakatsumi."
Legend has it that during the Battle of Okehazama, Odai no Kata prayed for Tokugawa Ieyasu's long-lasting good fortune in battle and offered the name "Hanakatsumi," for "katsu" which means to "win," to a Buddhist altar.
Take a stroll along the promenade and enjoy the beautifully vivid dark purple Hanakatsumi flowers. (Best time to see them is in mid-June)
