Check out the beauty of the Hydrangeas in Kamakura at Meigetsu-in. Hydrangeas are known as 紫陽花 or Ajisai in Japanese. They are just a short walk from Kita-Kamakura Station on the Yokosuka line. It’s less than an hour train ride from Tokyo station.
Some of the spectacular colours include a broad range of blue beauties. Gorgeously rich purples and some bright whites are also part of this stunning display.
Kamakura’s Hydrengeas are so popular, we recommend you visit on a weekday. Otherwise, the crowds can be a littler unbearable. Especially, avoid weekends and public holidays if you can.
