Hydrangeas in full bloom line the path that leads to the temple!

Honkoji Temple is the family sanctuary temple of the Fukozu-Matsudaira Clan, a branch of the Matsudaira family from which hero Tokugawa Ieyasu was born. That fact by itself is enough to make it very famous, but it is also the place known as "Mikawa's Temple of the Hydrangeas", for at this time of year the 10,000 bushes planted everywhere in the temple's area bloom all at once, decorating it with all sorts of hues and tones. Besides the spectacle provided by the flowers, the festival also features merchants selling the local produce such as home-made items and vegetables.
