Kameido Tenjin Shrine Wisteria Festival 2017

Kameido Tenjin Shrine (亀戸天神社) is a Shinto shrine located on the east side of Tokyo in Koto ward. It is not only a place to pray butalso a great place to view wisteria. About 200 trees of lovely purple wisteria blossoms dangled from 15 trellises, which mostly hang around the pond.

2017 Season: April 15 – May 7, 2017

It is one of the lesser known flower festivals but equally as beautiful and very accessible to central Tokyo.
