The Mt. Sangane Skyline Road (Sanganesan Skyline) is famous for its other nickname, "Hydrangeas Line" (Ajisai Line). From June to mid-July, the approx. 70,000 hydrangea bushes planted along its course start to proudly blossom, so the whole month of June is dedicated to the Mt. Sangane Hydrangea Festival.
Among the events, the main attraction is the Hydrangea Festival held for two days in mid-June at the peak of Mt. Sangane, using as venue the parking lot and other facilities built there. Draws with prizes such as stays in local hotels, sales of local food and crafts, Japanese Taiko drums performances and other cultural events entertain the visitors.
