Beautiful Ajisai: Hydrangeas at Tokyo's Toshimaen

Located just 15 minutes from Ikebukuro, Toshimaen Amusement Park is packed with an astounding variety of hydrangeas for its small size and is well worth a visit to soothe away the stress of city life. Hydrangeas are beautiful, hydrophilic flowers that bloom throughout the melancholy month of June in vivid shades of blue, pink, and purple.
