The 2020 Iris Festival and Ukiya no Sato Tafune Boat ride has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus.

Every year mid June there is an Iris festival in Ukiyano Sato in Kazo. The opening ceremony for the 2019 week long festival is on June 9th at 9 am. You can enjoy the Irises in bloom as well as the avenue of mature Kunigi trees, nature walks, food stalls and the popular boat ride;

Boat Ride

As part of the festival, weather permitting, you can enjoy a boat ride with a female steering the lead in traditional apparel. The dates for 2019 have not yet been released, but it is generally on the two Sundays and the Saturday that fall during the Iris festival period. They are charging 300 yen for adults and 100 yen for children to cover an insurance cost.
