<Outline of the garden>
 Uto Yohena who was the owner of this garden. 100-year-old lady sadly passed away last year. She found scene of purpose in life in her garden. Her life was wonderful.
who had been toiling at raising the hydrangeas for more than four decades. Her garden was actually a tangerine field until 39 years ago.
She loved flowers so she planted the hydrangea flower along the paths between the tangerine trees.  Eventually, the flowers began dominating the tangerine trees and the garden grew. Then she opened the garden in 2001. She took care of the flowers with her family all around year for visitors.There are now more than 10,000 hydrangeas and many colors bloom, like pink white and blue in the garden.  Many foreign people visit and enjoy here recently. Almost visitors say the flowers make them happy. We are so happy to hear that. Thank you for visit to our garden.
