Kameido Tenjinsha, Koto

(3.7/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 冬天的時間來到,雖然沒有紫滕可以看到,但亦有其他的植物開花,梅花、桃花等。 剛巧遇上神社的某個活動,神社內都大排長龍,聽說他們是為了購買一樣東西,可安放在家中來祈求平好的,就好像我們香港觀音借富一樣,到了明年,他們會把東西拿回神社作處理,神社內還可看到晴空塔,可說是新舊交融。 
  • Try on January 24, 25, of izunuma, so ask. But for long until our cute lie bird line. To come still firmly in wait patiently. Sunny day like this is fun on rainy days and cold days is pretty spicy. But when they encounter lying bird relieved. Forget the passage of time, environment and exploring leisurely enjoy a subtle plum flavor begins blooming plum. I recommend Wisteria flower season! in times is a place you want to visit.

  • Again, it was extremely crowded, learned his lesson, since it is not GW. Fuji also here do not go see them. The Red Bridge and pond, atmosphere, so may not even good.
