June is here and that means 3 things. First, summer starts later this month. Also, it’s the start of rainy season in Japan. But probably most beautiful is the blooming of hydrangea. There are a couple of places in Kamakura that are famous for hydrangea, Meigetsuin and Hasedera temples. I’m hoping to visit Hasedera later this month to see the hydrangea in full bloom. I’ve already seen them blooming in Meigetsuin. Below is the purple variety. I’ve also seen blue, pink and green flowers. Which is your favourite?
