 Jojuin had been a very popular Ajisai viewing spot in Kamakura until two years ago.   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 last year.

 Even though we can't see that great view any more, it will be good to see a few Ajisa that was newly planted this yeari with the ocean view in the back.
