The Weigela middendorffiana are beautiful to see.

From the area around the 8th Station up to the peak, the Weigela middendorffiana have quickly entered their best viewing season.
Last year, their peak season did not begin until July, which is an indication of how early the flowering is occurring this year.
There are still many buds on the plants, so unless some really bad weather comes, we can expect the communities to remain for a while.
The Trollius riederianus and Geranium erianthum f. pallescens are blooming from the area of Mt. Kurodake’s 9th Station. It will not be long before the 9th Station takes on its famed “mountain of flowers” appearance.
