Hilly area in northern Miyagi – home of the flower garden

DSC00422_R I visited a lily garden in Ichihasama, Kurihara City to admire the flower of early summer, for the first time in last several decades.

Lily bulbs hadn’t been delivered due to the Great East Japan Earthquake and the planted area has been reduced to approximately 40 %, yet colorful lilies were at their best.  Some more variety of lilies is blooming soon and the season still continues.  Staff holding a shovel in hand and with plastic bags hanging from their waste are going round in the garden who would root up your favorite lily for you to take home (for fees).  Take advan


tage of free admission and visit the garden by the end of this year. 
Your support (and donation if possible) is highly appreciated!
