Bamboo lilies in Fushiogami(Fushiogami no Sasayuri)


Flowers watching over Izumi Shikibu

In recent years, there are fewer bamboo lilies that color the Kumano Kodo from May to June. Yet pretty bamboo lilies bloom every year at Fushiogami-oji, as if they are watching over the memorial monument for Izumi Shikibu. In the villages in Fushiogami, we can also see bamboo lily flowers cultivated with care.
