Hydrangea Festival

The Hydrangea Festival is a Shinto ritual held at Kumano Nachi Taisha Grand Shrine, which is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors view hydrangea and pray for sound health while expressing gratitude for the blessings of nature. Dozens of types of hydrangea bloom in the shrine precincts, which are home to about 2,500 bushes. People who visit the shrine by around noon can also receive matcha green tea.
