Yohena Hydrangea Garden
Yohena Hydrangrea Garden located in Izumi of Motobu-cho town in northern Okinawa. The garden had originally been a tangerine field before its owner, Mrs. Uto Yohena started planting hydrangeas and they grew covering the whole garden. Now there are more than 300,000 beautiful flowers blooming from nearly 30 different species of hydrangeas in the vast garden. Not only blue but also purple and white ones covering the entire area will immediately grab your eyes as you walk through the entrance. The landscape once used to be a hidden gem has been selected as one of The 30 Best Hydrangeas Gardens in Western Japan and draws a number of visitors from over the world
The owner of the exquisite hydrangea gardens who turned 100 this year. She has been seen on local TV and magazines as she has been awarded for contributing such beautiful scenery to the community.
The paths in the gardens are paved which allows a stroller access easily as well. However be prepared for some narrow steps if you’re planning to go up the area to observe the spectacular scenery spreading down the hills.
What is so fascinating about hydrangeas is that they are constantly adjusting to the new environment given. For instance, hydrangeas can change their colors on their own when they are transplanted in different soil. If they are changed from blue to pink, that indicates aluminum has been subtracted from the soil.
