Japanese weather in June! Rainy season except Hokkaido and Okinawa

In Japan, it rains a lot in June. June is the transition period from spring to . For that reason, I can not recommend it very strongly for traveling in June. However, on rainy days, both temples and shrines are quiet and very calm. In June, hydrangeas will bloom at temples and shrines. If you go to such spots in June, you will be sure to heal your mind.

If you plan to travel in Japan in June, I recommend you to add Hokkaido to your itinerary. Japan is generally rainy and humid in June. However, there are not so many rains in Hokkaido.

It is the temple of Kamakura that I recommend to you as a tourist attraction in June. Especially, Meigetsuin temple and Hasedera temple are recommended. A lot of hydrangeas bloom in June every year in these temple. The top photo on this page is Meigetsuin.

Kamakura is about an hour away by train from the city center of Tokyo. The official site of Kamakura is as follows. If you are interested, please take a look.

If you want to see hydrangeas in temples in Kyoto, I recommend that you go to Mimurotoji temple. Mimurotoji is famous for its beautiful hydrangea garden. The garden opens every year from the beginning of June until around the beginning of July. Below is a video shot of Mimurotoji garden.

A lot of hydrangeas blooms in the main cities of Honshu from the middle of June to the beginning of July. However in 2018 many hydrangeas bloomed from the beginning of June.

Cherry blossoms look beautiful on sunny days. On the other hand, hydrangeas flowers get wet with rain and shine. Perhaps hydrangeas may look beautiful on rainy days. Every year many tourists quietly appreciate these hydrangeas. Why do not you go?

Hydrangea 's flowers bloom a lot also in the mountains. The Japanese living in Tokyo often go to see hydrangeas in Hakone, besides Kamakura.

The above video was taken of hydrangea flowers around Hakone Tozan Railroad.
The Hakone Tozan Railway is famous for hydrangea blooming along the railroad tracks. There are approximately 10,000 shares of hydrangeas along the railway line.

In Hakone every year many flowers of hydrangea bloom from the end of June to the middle of July. Hakone is a little cooler than Kamakura, so the time when flowers bloom is a little late.

Every year when hydrangea blooms,  dedicated trains also run so please gather information.

I appreciate you reading to the end.
