Meigetsuin temple


Meigesuin temple
Hydrangea path at Meigetsuin temple in Kamakura city near Tokyo.
Meigetsuin temple is one of the most famous hydrangea viewing spots in Japan.
This place in this photo is the most popular photo spot of this temple.
Same as the previous years, it was very difficult to take video and photo in a way that people won’t get into the frame.
I stood in line for an hour before the gate opened, and rushed to this place as soon as it opened.
Then I had to take nice shots in a few minutes before many tourists came into this path.
Perhaps because I was in a hurry, my hand holding iPhone was shaking.
