Wisteria festival from April 16 to May 5
Famous for its arched vermilion bridge, Kameido Tenjin Shrine is one of the best spots to see purple wisteria. The shrine’s wisteria festival kicks off in mid-April and features over 50 trees blooming simultaneously on a number of trellises centred around a little pond. Come evening, you can catch the beautiful blooms when they’re all lit up, and enjoy their reflection on the water’s surface. Make sure to drop by the on-site food stalls to fuel up on typical festival fare.
