June is usually the rainy season in Japan, but we haven’t had much rain until now ( as of June 26) this year. Finally we expect we will have the official declaration of the rainy season in Kinki (Kansai) area today. Speaking of the rainy season, you can enjoy beautiful hydrangea all over Japan. Hydrangea is the flower of the rainy season and it goes well with the rain. Sukumadani Kannon Temple in Wakayama Prefecture is famous for beautiful hydrangea garden, where you can enjoy many kinds of hydrangea. It is said that there are more than 10,000 hydrangeas there.
