Autumun Flowers in Kamakura ( 1 )

In autumn, colored leaves are very popular, but many kinds of flowers bloom beautifully, too. Last week, I found some flowers at temples and shrines in Kamakura.

Japanese beautiful nature and interesting culture !

This is Japanese toad lily called 'Hototogisu' in Japanese. Hototogisu means a little cuckoo. It is said to be named because dots of the flower is similar to the feather pattern of cuckoo's chest.

It is in full bloom from October through November. I saw it at Hiruko Jinja Shrine and found it so sweet! Hototogisu is a very pretty flower and often decorated in the tea ceremony room.

Hi! I'm Yu Kameda. I'm a national licensed English tour guide. I grew up and live in Yokosuka City of Kanagawa Prefecture. It is located in the south of Tokyo, and close to Kamakura City and Hayama Town. Historically, Yokosuka is an international city, so, since childhood, I like to communicate with foreign people. Now, I'm very happy to introduce my beautiful hometown to the world. Please let me support your memorable tour in Japan as your guide!
I'm looking forward to seeing you. Thank you!
