Japan’s June is rainy season. Rainy season starts in Japan
And June is also known for “Ajisai”
, the hydrangea.
Jay and I went to Kita-Kamakura
, which is famous Ajisai spot
(North Kamakura) is especially famous for Ajisai
We went there by car but probably because it was the season, it was soooooo crowded
We couldn’t find any parking space near Kita-Kamakura area so we went to one station away to the Kamakura station
We were able to park our car there and had a light lunch near the station.
Then we started to walk to Kita-Kamakura area
Address: 1367 Yamanouchi, Kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture 247-0062
Entrance fee: 200 yen/person
Do I recommend?
It’s worth to visit one time if you know Ajisai has bloomed a lot.
Ajisai is very concentrated but the temple itself is very tiny.
So you might feel it’s not worth the money.
is one of the famous Ajisai places in Kita-Kamakura
I see why it is famous.
Ajisai are concentrated
in small area.
But the temple is very tiny
and I don’t know if it’s worth the money.
(But for us it’s worth the money because we are using the picture I took here as our profile picture!
I took so many pictures of Ajisai
in Kamakura and decided to use this picture as our June/July profile for Omoide House
It was one of the reason why we went to Kamakura too.
I want to take seasonal pictures
and use for Omoide House’s profile pictures
I’m glad we were able to get one.
from different angle.
Address: 〒247-0247 Kanagawa Prefecture, Kamakura, Yamanouchi, 409
Entrance fee: 300 yen/person
Do I recommend?
Yes. There wasn’t as many Ajisai as I expected but enough to enjoy.
The temple is very large and nice to have a walk even without Ajisai.
is one of the famous places for Ajisai in Kamakura
It’s 100 yen more expensive
than Tokei-ji Temple. But I recommend this temple more than Tokei-ji Temple. It’s worth it.
I guess this is the famous spot
Because this is ticket to the Engaku-ji temple
and I noticed I took the picture at the same spot
I should’ve tried from this angle.
This temple is nice to visit just for a stroll
I think it is relatively new and very large.
I felt Kyoto.
I like this whitish color Ajisai
although it doesn’t really have an impact through pictures.
It looks whitish from far but it actually is mix of light blue and light yellow
It can also be used as a wedding bouquet
Light purple Ajisai
is also beautiful.
Very vivid beautiful color
. What color is this?? Purple
I thought this was a different kind of Ajisai.
But apparently this Ajisai hasn’t bloom completely
It starts blooming from outside and inside hasn’t bloom. Interesting!
