Hydrangea Garden Yohena

Hydrangea Garden Yohena opens only from around mid-May to the end of June every year. In addition to the more than 300,000 hydrangeas that bloom on an approximately 10,000-square-meter hillside, there are tree ferns, begonias and Medinilla magnifica, also known as the Philippine orchid, which produces rare pink flowers. The uniqueness of this garden where such unique tropical plants are growing in harmony with the hydrangeas has also attracted attention from mainland Japan.

Miyagi Island’s hidden beach

A hidden beach on Miyagi Island where rave parties and other events used to be held in the past, as hardly anything existed there other than fields.
