Kameido Tenjinsha, Koto

3.9
A visit to Kameido Tenjinsha during late April or early May affords vibrant and picturesque views of blooming wisteria trees. Established in 1661, the temple enshrines the ninth-century politician and scholar, Sugawara no Michizane, who is said to offer worshippers luck and good favor in exams. The focal point of the temple is its large pond in the front gardens, where you'll find around 200 wisteria trees growing on trellises bordering the pond, and have the chance to traverse traditional-looking, steep-arched bridges, lacquered in red paint. Look out for the koi carp and turtles, resident in the water, and expect busy crowds during the wisteria bloom.

  • Kameido Tenjin shrine located near the workplace, arrived early in the morning, I went today for the first time. Wakamatsu anmitsu, Kudzu's famous front Street and walk a little to the left found kameido Tenjin shrine. Large Torii gate, bow first. Soba restaurant in front of the gate. Inside kameido Tenjin shrine, and from there crossed the stone bridge towards Tenjin shrines and splendid wisteria. Have a good sight of both the sky and kameido Tenjin shrine, so close to the scenic and I was surprised. Walking along thinking that brought Tenjin shrines. Beginning to get donations and prayers for each. Also it's not age that school is now working and prayed. I thought I would realize success of this respectable Tenjin shrines. Now, Mum has exhibited in, it seems a little early yet. I think at some point, you want to go there again.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
