Hydrangea in Bloom

Blue Hydrangeas

The hydrangea, called ajisai in Japanese, are in bloom all around Kyoto this time of year! In many places the hydrangea have already begun to wither, but there is one bush here at Ninna-ji that seems to have just come into full bloom and full color! It is right behind the ticket booth near the Nio Gate! If you visit within the next few days be sure to take a peak!
