Kameido : Wisteria festival 2016 at Kameido-ten Jinja shrine (亀戸天神)

The best season of wisteria is very short.

I went to Kameido-ten Jinja shrine with my friend to see wisteria last week.

先週のことになりますが、藤を見に、亀戸天神へ行ってきました。

Kameido-ten Jinja shrine (or Kameido Tenmangu shrine, Kameido shrine) is located about 20 minutes walk from Kameido station and Kinshicho station.
But there were lots of people because wisteria festival was held and it was fine day.
Lots of stalls were along the promenade to shrine.

以前偶然ここの藤を見て、すごくきれいだった記憶があります。

Clear view of Tokyo Skytree was great 🙂

青空に、東京スカイツリーも映えます。

I didn’t feel wisteria is beautiful flower until quite recently.
But now I’m looking forward to seeing it every Spring.

Kameido-ten Jinja shrine is said to be the greatest viewing wisteria spot in Tokyo and the wisteria festival is held around the end of April to the beginning of May.

藤棚の下には人だかり。

But wisteria wasn’t in full bloom. It might be already past their peak, or their peak didn’t come yet. Still it was beautiful.

しかしたくさん人がいる割には肝心の藤はあまり咲いていません。

Small and soft purple flowers were cute.
