It is a beautiful park. When the ajisai are in full bloom in mid June, it is spectacular.

It's a wonderful place. During the rainy season it's quite busy with the hydrangea festival, but usually it is a quiet place. Well suited for a picnic, the nature is beautiful and it is a bit hidden so it is mainly popular among locals.

Excellent temple and large garden. In the summer the hydrangeas are everywhere.

水戸城内 お寺の庭園を愛した水戸黄門様光圀公が保和園と命名しました。紫陽花100品種6000株の花が咲く名園と知られ 泉水を配した池と噴水⛲️と社寺との調和とれた景観で水戸のアジサイ祭り名園です。助さん格さんのお墓もあり、ピンコロ地蔵(ピンピン健康でコロと成仏する)さんも有名です。
