Jojuin Temple is 5 minutes walk from Gokurakuji station. It takes around 1hours 17min or so from Tokyo station to reach Gokurakuji station. This temple is famous for beautiful hydrangea on both sides of its stairways. Best time to visit is in June.
We went here quite early in the morning (before 0830am) to avoid the crowd. There is no entrance fee to enter the area where hydrangeas are. From the highest stairway we can see the ocean in the distance. Both sides of the stairway were full of colourful hydrangeas. I guess this place won't be worth visiting after hydrangea season.
Recommend time of visit in Hydrangea season: before 0830am so you can take good pictures of yourself without any unwanted people in the frame.
