Ajisai (Hydrangea) in Kamakura

June is a season of Ajisai :紫陽花 (Hydrangea) in Kamakura city in Japan. There are many places where beautiful Ajisai flowers can be seen. Today I fistly visited Meigetsuin:明月院, which is also called as Ajisai temple.

When you move from a temple to another temple, you will find Ajisai like below.




Jojuin :成就院

成就院(Jojuin) give us fine view as below.


Yuigahama, a beach near Kamakura, will be in sight. However please note a lot of people come to this temple during Ajisai season, which leads to much crowded situation. In the worst case we may need to wait with patience.


Note: Jojuin is under maintenance work from 2015-2017 according to information in Japanese website. Hope we will be able to see them again in 2018.
