When you think of traveling to Japan, the first impressions that come to mind are the cherry blossoms in spring and the autumn leaves, but during the rainy season from June to July you can also enjoy hydrangeas.

Because it is the rainy season, you can also enjoy the sight of water droplets sparkling on the leaves and petals.

1. In front of a field of blooming hydrangeas

First, let's look at a simple photography method. Hydrangeas often bloom to a height roughly equivalent to your height, so they are easier to photograph than cherry blossoms, which bloom high up on the tree, and you can capture them beautifully just by standing in front of them.

2. A view from the side of a passage lined with hydrangeas

Next time, you can turn a little and take a photo with the hydrangea next to you, instead of standing with your back to it. Each hydrangea flower is large, so even if you take a photo from a little distance, the flowers will stand out and look beautiful.

3. Standing behind a hydrangea

Next, let's move on to a slightly more advanced version. If you take a photo of hydrangeas as a "foreground blur" so that the hydrangeas are close to the camera, you can take a photo that looks as if you are surrounded by hydrangeas. Here, it looks like a special world just for the two of you is unfolding.

4. Hydrangeas and your hands together

Finally, here is an idea for taking a photo without showing your face. Take a photo of the hydrangea flowers, your hands, and your belongings. There are many other ideas, such as making a heart next to a large hydrangea, taking a photo with an important ring, or taking a photo with a printed Polaroid. Please give it a try.

So, what do you think? I hope this makes you want to try taking photos with hydrangeas.

Hydrangeas bloom all over Japan from June to July! There are some famous places to see them, such as Kamakura in Kanagawa Prefecture and Hakusan Shrine in Tokyo, but if you take a walk in Japan during the rainy season, you're sure to see them blooming by the roadside. Don't let the rain get you down, and enjoy the scenery of Japan that can only be seen during the rainy season.
