Neglected Hydrangea Spot : Tokyo Midtown, Roppongi

Hydrangea flower or Ajisai spots in Tokyo bring up the usual recommendations like Asukayama Park, Asakusa Sumida River Bank or even out of the city spots like Kamakura. If I was to say that Hydrangea blossoms in Midtown are also a place to visit, you may not believe it. I too accidentally discovered the blossoms in my visit to Tokyo Midtown, casually strolling in the garden at the back.

Hydrangea Blossoms at Tokyo Midtown

Tokyo Midtown isn’t all about skyscrapers and shopping sprees. It also has a softer side, with serene green spaces that provide a much-needed oasis in the urban jungle. Hinokicho Park, with its lush gardens and peaceful ambiance, offers the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle. I have certainly enjoyed this space in spring time when the cherry blossoms attract a lot of tourists, but Hydrangea spread is not well advertised, nor known, so I believe it is a hidden spot at that.

Hinokicho Park isn’t just a place for relaxation; it also hosts various seasonal events and festivals throughout the year, but in these off times of June, they offer the best time to visit and unwind in the tranquil ambience with very few crowds.

The best part is that the Hydrangea blossoms are well lit with illuminations which makes the visit in the evening a better choice to enjoy.

Beyond the Hydrangea blossoms, Hinokicho Park offers a variety of picturesque landscapes to explore. You’ll find peaceful ponds adorned with lily pads, gracefully gliding ducks, and vibrant koi fish, creating a serene ambiance that transports you to a world of tranquility. Take a seat on one of the park’s benches, close your eyes, and let the soothing sounds of nature wash over you.

Hopefully the images convince you of this undiscovered gem of a place for Hydrangea viewing. Don’t forget to include a visit to Hinokicho Park in your Tokyo Midtown itinerary – it’s a hidden oasis waiting to be discovered.

On the way back, the flower arrangement, Ikebana, also featured the Hydrangea theme, awesomeness to say the least

On the way back the Sushi place on the Roppongi street had a rather beautiful Kumiko style sliding door. The backlit just made it so beautiful, that I had to take this snap. Reflected my experience from the park. SERENE…..
