Kameido Tenjin Wisteria Festival
*Shrine is open; planned events and illuminations canceled*
Kameido Tenjin Shrine is known for its spectacular purple wisteria, which bloom in late April. The shrine is home to around 100 blooming wisteria trees which attract thousands of visitors each year who come to enjoy the beautiful lilac colored flowers and their subtle fragrance. In addition to the striking Tokyo Skytree visible in the background skyline, the grounds include a picturesque pond, reflecting the hanging flowers and creating a magical scene during both day and night time. The annual wisteria festival also features food stalls, tea ceremonies and flower arrangement displays to cater to the flocking crowds.
