I visited so many gardens that I lost track of which ones they are. I think this is Shoyo-en in Kamakura. Kamakura an hour south of Tokyo by subway.
To-shugu in Kamakura
These are called Ajisai... they are plentiful in Japan in summer (and they adorned vases in restaurants) and look great as a wedding bouquet but I don't think that they last long
Heian Jingu, Kyoto (3 hour ride west by Shinkansen- bullet train from Tokyo)
Too bad... no little froggies but plenty of huge carps
Managed to go really close without scaring the little blue dragonfly
