A Famous Azalea Viewing Location, and Popular for its Important Cultural Property Buildings and Torii Corridor

3.00

Shinto shrine

The main shrine building and gates were all finished in 1706 and remain intact to this day, and they have been designated as Important Cultural Properties of Japan.
Also popular are the beautiful scarlet torii corridor (“senbon torii”) and the “praying nutmeg tree” that’s said to grant people’s wishes.
From mid-April through early May, around 3,000 azaleas across 100 varieties bloom beautifully in the azalea garden. The “Bunkyo Azalea Festival” is held when the flowers are at their peak, and that is the only time when the azalea garden is open to the public.
The Nezu Festival is held in September, and it’s another popular time for visitors.
