Japan Blue

${{amount_no_decimals}}">
  • When you think of the color blue, you might think of the sky or the sea – and in Japan, the color blue was once symbolic of common people as indigo was an easily available natural colorant for clothing.
  • You'll find blue in various other ways in Japan, from shrines that incorporate blue pottery into their grounds, through to blue flowers and even blue buildings.
  • This guide covers five blue destinations in Japan worth visiting.

Unshoji Temple is located in Oga, Akita Prefecture, and has become famous for its spectacular display of blue hydrangeas during Japan's rainy season. The hydrangeas here were nurtured over a 15 year timeframe by the deputy chief priest of the temple, and his hard work paid off - when the flowers are in bloom here the scene is nothing short of magical.

The pond is filled from a nearby waterfall which runs down a cliff face packed with aluminum, and the rocks at the bottom of the pond are also bleached courtesy of sulfur – in other words, the water has a blank canvas to reflect off.
