This is “Chozuya” filled with colorful hydrangea flowers.
It is a place for ritual cleansing of hands and mouth water when visiting shrines.
Usually it isn’t decorated with flowers but in June many shrines all across Japan have Chozuya decorated with hydrangea.
I’ve seen a lot of beautiful photos of it on Instagram, but this was the first time I saw it in real.
