Do you know the flower “Suisen”? – Shirahama beach in Shimoda

060118suisen001_1When I went shopping I went to Shirahama beach to take a photo of winter flower.
Do you know  this flower?  Have you ever seen it in Japan?

This flower is called "Suisen" in Japanese, it means Narcissus or Daffodil.
In Shimoda we have "Suisen Festival" in every winter at Tsumekizaki cape. (It takes about 15 minutes by car from Sakuraya.)
There is a right house on the hill and small creek in front of the flowers, so we can see and feel the beautiful Japanese local nature with Pacific Ocean and Izu seven islands, and  it would be good experience for you.
Please see the photos that I took there a few years ago.
