Slide1:

JAPAN Rain, Snow & Art

Slide2:

Seasons are a main theme in the Japanese culture. Flowers are like mirrors to the seasons, reflecting the passage of time. Fittingly, flower viewing is a very popular activity in Japan as most prominently seen in the annual festivities surrounding the cherry blossoms, but not limited to them

Slide3:

From the end of May through early July, Japan experiences weeks and weeks of rain as if a monsoon season has arrived. Unlike the beating rainfall of monsoon, however, the rain this season is softer and never-ending. A bed of vivid purple flowers in such gloomy and silent background is truly breathtaking. The end of the Spring, flowers have changed from cherry blossoms and then azalea to iris. These flowers known by the name of iris in English has several types as Ayame , Kakitsubata , and Hana-shobu . All of them are very similar but the flowering time and the shape of leaf are subtly different

Slide4:

Is now early summer but people connect the image of irises to rain rather the clear sky in Japan. Irises bloom in the fifth month of the year, during the rainy season known as samidare, when the rain falls gently and continuously 

Slide5:

The iris is also known as hanashoubu, hana meaning “flower” and shoubu, a play on words that can mean “martial spirit” or “victory or defeat” as in a match or a showdown. Designs of hanashoubu and dragonflies were often stamped into tanned deerskin and worn into battle to protect a warrior
