Shrine

Nice shrine hidden in area surrounded by buildings. Quiet place to visit. Plants were not out in Dec but should be beautiful in spring. No charge to visit.

This shrine has a lovely pond in front of it that can calm a person when Tokyo gets to be too much. The wisteria is lovely in bloom but at that time the grounds are very popular and crowded so it loses some of its charm.

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.
