Kamakura / Enoshima Hydrangea Sightseeing spot in June Four Recommended tourist attractions

Tour Spot



Kamakura in June is the season when hydrangeas are in full bloom.
Speaking of hydrangea sightseeing, Kamakura is famous for it! And at the best time to see them are all the crowds!!

Why is it that although we can see hydrangeas anywhere in Japan, Kamakura and Shonan Enoshima is popular with many people as a spot for hydrangeas? Of course there is a reason for this.

We, Enoshima Taxi started our services in the Shonan area 66 years ago, and we will take you to see recommended spots for hydrangeas in Kamakura / Enoshima.

Meigetsuin Blue in Kitakamakura


Meigetsuin also known as “Ajisai-dera”.
The highlight is a group of blue hydrangeas called “Meigetsuin Blue.”
“Hime Ajisai” was planted to give a sense of unity and is initially a pale blue color and gradually changes to a dark blue color day by day.

Avoid the crowds of “Ajisaidera”, and go to Shonan / Enoshima for a hydranga tour

Temples such as Hase-dera and Meigetsuin are famous but actually Enoshima is also a great Hydrangea sightseeing spot. We recommend you enjoy hydrangeas here, avoiding the crowds at “Ajisai-dera”.

While you can enjoy hydrangeas at different places around the island, the best recommended place is at one of Enoshima Shrine’s three palaces, the hydrangeas of “Okutsu Palace”, which is situated deepest into the mountains. Walking along a path surrounded by hydrangeas, you will be overwhelmed by the beautiful fresh flowers. We highly recommend it.

Spot information

Best season Early June –
Nearest station Enoshima Dentetsu Enoshima Station 15 minutes on foot
Shonan Monorail Shonan Enoshima Station 15 minutes on foot
Odakyu Enoshima Line Katase Enoshima Station 10 minutes on foot
