It’s Wisteria Time in Tokyo

img_20170430_150236

Until May 6th 2017, there is still some time to visit the wonderful Wisteria flower display at Kameido Tenjin Shrine in the Kinshicho area. The purple flowers begin blooming quite rapidly from late April until the beginning of May.

These lovely violet-colored flowers hang in several bunches like grapes. The Kameido Tenjin Shrine is well known for its wisterias. Beneath the wisteria trellises is a charming pond filled with carp and tortoises, creating the unique scenery of purple flowers reflected on the surface of the water. Going way back, these flowers were planted during the Edo period and are featured in many ukiyoe (color prints) and other works of art. For a modern touch, good views of Tokyo Sky Tree can be seen from the Shrine.
