Michinoku hydrangea garden in the Maikawa district of Ichinoseki city, Iwate is “Japan’s No.1 hydrangea garden” certified by the Japan Hydrangea Association.
The beautiful hydrangeas bloom in about 15 ha of a cedar mountain during the hydrangea season.
This garden is decorated with about 40,000 plants and 400 varieties of hydrangea. the number of original varieties is one of the best in Japan.
This hydrangea was planted by Mr. Ito who owns this forest since 1983. Then the Michinoku Hydrangea Garden is opened in 1997 while increasing the variety and number each year. Now it is featured on TV, and many people are visiting to see hydrangeas.
Also, just before the hydrangea season, the “Shakunage Festival” is held, and you can enjoy beautifully colored Shakunage and Kalmia.
What is Michinoku Hydrangea Festival?
“Michinoku Hydrangea Festival” is the main event of the Michinoku Hydrangea Garden, will be held for about a month from late June to late July every year.
You can enjoy the beautiful view of the hydrangea which is a characteristic of the rainy season while taking a walk through the three courses, “Kurenai Course”, “Okuhime Course”, and “Kenkyaku Course”.
Regarding the flowering situation on June 27, 2020, 80% of the early blooming hydrangea was in full bloom, and late blooming hydrangea began to start!
Early blooming hydrangeas are were full bloom and are spectacular. The colorful hydrangea was very beautiful such as blue, white, pink, purple.
This picture is the state of the hydrangea filed. The hydrangea field is a place where countless hydrangeas are planted in the open areas of the garden, and the beautiful view spreads out like a carpet of hydrangea.
I think that the flowering situation will change depending on the weather conditions of the year, but I hope it will be a reference when visiting next year or later.
