Narcissus flowers are in bloom and brighten up the day of the villagers in 64 year-old Toshikazu Uchima’s Narcissus Gardens in Ie Island.

The gardens are located near Iejima Airport in Nishieue Ie Village, by the natural source of freshwater called Wajii on the northern coast. The flowers bloom from the end of December and their petals sway in the wind as though they are dancing. The narcissus has white petals and a yellow heart, and has a sweet scent.

Besides running Pharmacy Uchima, 30 years ago he started to plant narcissus flowers in attempt to create an island full of beautiful flowers. Uchima said, “I want people to enjoy the flowers in bloom and their lovely scent.”

The narcissus flowers look fantastic right through the month of January. For a fee, the garden will pick flowers for customers. For further information please contact Pharmacy Uchima at 0980-49-2123.
