  This place is famous for the ocean view with Enoshima in the back.  We can enjoy it with Ajisai in that season.  When the sky is clear with dry air, we can aslo see Mt. Fuji, while it's rare after spring.

  As for the hydrangea in this year, those on the upper place are better than the lower place, which are partly withered due to the strong sunshine before the rainy season from the early June.

  Jojuin had been a very popular Ajisai viewing spot in Kamakura until 2015.   External stairs were surrounded by the flowers to the top the hill.

  Most of them were donated to Tohoku region when the approach was under the repair-work 2016.

  Even though we can't see those gogeous flowers any more, it's still nice to see some newly planted Ajisai with the ocean view in the back.
