Shaga (Iris japonica) flowers in Engaku-ji

The white small flower of Shaga is one of the most typical wild flowers of spring in Kita-kamakura.

Shaga flowers bloom one after another in almost every short bush to announce the climax of spring together with the sweet songs of bush warblers.

The thin petals of this flower are illuminated brightly by the soft ray of sunshine which is falling through the flowering bush.
