Plan description

Historical cosplay also available!

✔ Have your photo taken in fields of purple Irises
✔ Dress-up like Nara Period aristocracy in Tohoku's old capital
✔ Create a lasting momento of your Spring adventure in Japan

Just a 14 min train ride from central Sendai Station lies the city of Tagajo, once a sprawling fortress and bustling capital city of the Mutsu Province. Whilst the physical presence of the castle buildings has disappeared over the centuries, the town still remains an important historical hub for the Tohoku region.
By far the best time to visit is during the annual ‘Ayame Matsuri’ (Iris Festival) in mid-late June (this year, from June 15 – 29), when the former castle grounds transform into a carpet of every shade of purple you can imagine! An incredible 3 million (!) irises of over 600 different varieties will bloom across the park to be enjoyed alongside a plethora of fun interactive activities and live entertainment.

There will also be Nara Period traditional costumes available for you to try on and create some historical cosplay scenes.
