Ajisai (hydrangea) flowers in Kencho-ji
The flowers of Ajisai, which are turning color from green into blue by subtle gradations, are quietly blooming beside the deep bamboo grove behind this old temple.
It is generally said that the Japanese name "Ajisai" originates from "Azu" (group) and "Sa-ai" (blue flower) and means "a group of blue flowers."
