Flowers in Japan are a wonder
In Japan, you can see beautiful flowers in every season.
This is one of the things that will surprise you when you come to Japan.
The most famous flower this time of year is the hydrangea.
Hydrangeas are flowers that change color depending on the quality of the soil.
Some families plant them in their gardens, and the Japanese have long been familiar with this flower.
This page introduces hydrangeas at Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine in Dazaifu City, which is famous in Fukuoka Prefecture.
Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine is a famous shrine visited by more than 8.5 million people annually.
Here, colorful hydrangeas float on the water where people wash and purify their hands (called chozubachi).
This is called hanatemizu.
