We went to Hasedera temple on the second day of our trip to Kamakura.
Hasedera’s hydrangea path at the top of the temple is so popular among people and so large number of people visit there every year.
It was before 10 a.m., but as you see, there were already lots of people there.
When we got to the ticket office, the staff said to us we have to wait about 90 minutes for enjoying the hydrangea path !
Oh my !!!!!
Bu we couldn’t gave up, so we got tickets for hydrangea path and entered the temple. Our ticket No. was 517 !
Hasedera temple have many sights to see. So, we had no difficulty in waiting for 90 minutes 🙂
But we can get out of the temple once and enter again.
Benten kutsu (Benzaiten Grotto)
Bentenkutsu is a cave having various statues and devotionals to Benzaiten.
So large number of benzaiten in the cave.
While taking a break in the shade, our ticket number was called. So, we went to the gate of the hydrangea path. But we couldn’t go up soon. There were many people in line.
Wow, so much hydrangeas in my sight !
Sea and hydrangeas. What a fine view 🙂
I was really impressed by the view. Hydrangea world 🙂
There are various kinds of hydrangeas.
Though Meigetsuin’s hydrangeas passed their peak, Hasedera’s hydrangeas were in their best. Those were extremely beautiful. I want to visit Kamakura next season again 🙂
