Miyajidake Jinja Shrine Iris Festival

START: May 27, 2017 END: Jun 15, 2017

Miyajidake Jinja Shrine, known for its beautiful stairway and path connecting the shrine to the sea, is also where you can see 100,000 Edo Japanese irises (100 species) and a nighttime light-up (~21:00) . At 10:00 on May 31 (Wed.), white-clad Shinto priests harvest irises, which the miko (shrine maidens) then hold during a sacred dance.
