Iris Flower for Japanese

Iris is a graceful flower that brightens up the early summer. And this flower is deeply rooted in the life of ancient Japan.

The use of iris flowers as hair accessories has a long history for the Japanese and is mentioned in the Manyoshu, a collection of poetry compiled 1,200 years ago.
The Manyoshu contains a poem written in Manyogana (Japanese phonetic alphabet) as "Ayamegusa" ("ayame-gu-sa").
