Hydrangeas illuminated along the train line in Hakone; ‘Hortensia Train’ runs over a route of 8.9 km


The Yomiuri Shimbun
A train passes illuminated hydrangeas in Hakone, Kanagawa Prefecture on Friday.

The lighting of hydrangeas began Friday evening along the 8.9-kilometer stretch between Hakone-Yumoto and Gora stations of Hakone Tozan Railway Co. in Hakone, Kanagawa Prefecture.

About 7,000 hydrangeas grown along the route will be illuminated at nine locations from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. until June 30. The flowers, now in full bloom on the stretch between Hakone-Yumoto and Ohiradai stations, are expected to bloom gradually on the remaining section to Gora Station.

A train nicknamed the ‘Hydrangea Train’ will travel along the 8.9 kilometer route in the evening, stopping or slowing down at various points so passengers can view the flowers.
