Wow ~ ... if you come right when flowers Wisteria is showing its beauty, you will definitely be fascinated with it. Purple flowers grow in some places were arranged neatly. In addition, after passing through the main entrance, you will also find the arched bridge to cross the existing pool. No need to pay a ticket to enter this area.

I visited the shrine premises for their annual Wisteria Festival. It was a pretty sight with the purple flowers, red bridges and ponds. There was even a monkey show that was being performed on the day of my visit! You can see the Tokyo Sky Tree from here too. For more details, photos and videos, check out my blog post... More

Kameido Tenjin has a garden with small ponds and bridges. Ume / Japanese plum and fuji / wisteria are planted in the garden. It is famous for both flowers. If you are in Tokyo in February or early spring it is worth a visit. You can walk there from the Kameido (JR) or Kinshicho (JR & Metro) stations.

I missed the sakura at Ueno Park but I sure on time for wisteria at Kameido Shrine. The whole area was soo beautiful. On top of that, I had Tokyo Sky Tree at the background. Perfect harmony between old and new.
