Located less than 2 kilometers from Shiofune Kannon in Ome, Fukiage Iris Park is a lovely place to take a stroll during June when the irises are blooming.  It costs ¥300 to park and ¥200 entry per adult during blooming season.  There are a few vendors selling food and tents with tables and chairs set up to picnic under.  It is not a large park, but very pretty and worth the visit.  Couple it with a visit to Shiofune Kannon for a nice morning. If you’re feeling adventurous to walk a bit more, the Inari Shrine is nearby, as well as ruins of the Katsunuma Castle from the 1500s.
