Charms of Minamiboso (38) Oga Lotus Garden

(38) 古代大賀蓮の里

The lotus at Oga Lotus Garden in Kamogawa are not just any kind. Their parent seeds were excavated from 2000-year-old stratum in Chiba, and the plant was named after Dr. Oga, who succeeded in sprouting and yielding a gorgeous pink flower from one of them. The flowers are at their best in early mornings from the end of June to the beginning of August. Also don’t wear your nice shoes as you walk between muddy rice paddies from the parking lot to the garden.
