The Hakusan Shrine is on the north side of Tokyo and known for beautiful hydrangeas of many different colors.
I saved the location of this Shrine a few weeks ago. I wanted to wait to visit until the hydrangeas were in full bloon. I ventured up today hoping to see amazing hydrangeas. It was about an hour and fifteen minute trip on the train.
This blue one was spectacular!
The hydrangeas also beautifully decorated the Shrine.
I know, I’m making it really difficult for you to decide when to visit next spring. It is hard to pick a favorite flower. Maybe you can rest easy knowing if you plan a spring visit, you will see beautiful flowers and gardens regardless of the flower blooming.
