Chiba Prefecture – Hondo-ji Temple’s 50,000 Hydrangeas

Hondo-ji Temple, in Chiba Prefecture’s Matsudo City, is a temple of the Nichiren sect of Buddhism that was built in 1277.
Every year in June, around 50,000 hydrangeas of over 10 varieties beautifully bloom. Because of this, the temple is also known as the “hydrangea temple.”
It is easily accessible, with Kita-Kogane Station, the station nearest to the temple, being only 50 minutes by train from Tokyo Station.
However, it truly is a well-kept-secret place, and you can be sure that you’ll be able to leisurely enjoy the flowers without worrying about crowds!

Hydrangea Festival in the Fuchu city local forest museum

Every early summer a hydrangea festival is held in the Fuchu city local forest museum (Kyodo no Mori Museum) located in Tokyo’s Fuchu, when around 10,000 plants of hydrangea are in bloom amid the museum buildings in a traditional style, and the museum becomes an ideal destination for visitor to take a pleasant walk while viewing flowers.
