Hydrangeas As Far As The Eye Can See! Hydrangea Temple With 60 Kinds & 10 Thousand Trees

Famed as a hydrangea temple in Nara, Yata-dera has as many as 10 thousand trees and 60 kinds of hydrangeas including rare ones. We never get tired of watching the differences between the kind at a sample garden.
Season: from June to the beginning of July every year, they open a hydrangea garden. Hydrangeas spreading toward the mountain are worth seeing. Many visitors come from other prefectures since Yata-dera has various kinds.

Colorful Scenery Weaved With Hydrangeas Everywhere

Yata-dera is renown as a hydrangea temple. There're 60 kinds and 10 thousand of hydrangeas bloom in the precinct, and I can feel relaxed just looking at them.
There're long steps on the way to Yata-dera Temple. you need to wear the easy-walking shoes.
