This is photo of purple irises taken in a garden frequented by Emperor Meiji and Empress Shōken.
Many thousands of people visit Meiji Jingu shrine, not far from Harajuku station…and most walk past the small entrance to the inner garden without noticing it.
May to June, the garden – which was built in the Edo period by Lord Kato of Kumamoto – becomes a symphony of purple as the irises finally bloom.
This photo was taken 18th June 2017.
This item is 8×10 inches. It is printed on Fujicolour Crystal Archive paper, in a matt finish.
