I just talked to my grandparents about writing about Iwakuni instead of Waki…but out comes another Waki post. Sorry…Waki’s just a pretty awesome place^^
In a corner of Waki just beyond the City Hall and Board of Education, there’s a little path that runs beside a small vegetable garden and a graveyard, and just before you start to climb the hill, there’s a patch of hydrangeas (called ajisai). I discovered them a week or two ago while on an outing with some students from the elementary school. I regrettably didn’t have my camera on me at the time, although I was able to take the next picture with the other teacher’s phone.
It’s pretty crazy how much the scenery here changes based on what’s blooming. I had no idea this was a hydrangea grove, even though I’d been here before. It rained quite a bit during rainy season in June, so some of the other hydrangeas in town that were out in the open looked pretty sad, but I think these hydrangeas were protected by all the trees and stayed nice for my pictures.
