Enjoy the hydrangeas at Kanagawa Prefecture’s Meigetsu-in Temple!

Japan’s rainy season may be coming up, but there’s still plenty to look forward to!

If you’re looking to see the flowers in all their glory, we suggest heading to the history-rich city of Kamakura, which was once the capital of Japan.
