Kyoto Rainy Season Hydrangea

Kyoto Hydrangea京都紫陽花

It's time for the annual hydrangea blog.

The island of Honshu, on which Tokyo and Kyoto are found, comes alive every June at the outset of the rainy season with colorful varieties of hydrangea.

Now in the middle of the rainy season, the flowers have lost a bit of their bloom.

These plants were along a one-track rail line in western Kyoto. The two most common type of hydrangea - the big round bulbous type, and the more delicate type - were both hugging the Randen train line tracks not far from Myoshinji Temple.
