Hydrangeas(1)

The rainy season ended in Okinawa on the 9th and started in Tohoku Region on the 21st of June. We are in the middle of rainy season, but sunny and hot weather lasted for three days. I couldn't sleep well. Kumagaya City in Saitama Prefecture reached 39.7 degrees Celsius on the 24th.  Meanwhile some areas were ravaged by torrential rains.
We're back to the rainy season again.

Ajisai(紫陽花:hydrangea) is a representative blossom in the rainy season.

The Hakone Tozan Railway (箱根登山鉄道) is a mountain railway extending from Odawara to Gora. Its tracks are lined with hydrangeas in full bloom on either side.

In Kamakura, Meigetsu-in Temple(明月院) is famous as "hydrangea temple". Most of hydrangeas at Meigetsu-in are Hydrangea macrophylla amoena(姫紫陽花, hime-ajisai) which is an old variety of Japanese hydrangeas. Its flower color doesn't change.
