A visit to the 2021 Omiya Hachiman chrysanthemums

The 2021 Omiya Hachiman chrysanthemums were beautiful. I hadn’t been there to see the flowers for two years. After getting up early, I made the long walk to the shrine. The weather was a little dodgy, but it cleared it somewhat by the time I got there. Upon arrival, I got a little surprise.

The chrysanthemum display area was much smaller than in previous years. Whereas they used to have two large booths, it was only one. That was maybe a good choice. The area looked very uncluttered.

And the flowers? They were in excellent condition. I was most pleased. Hopefully, the pictures reflect what I saw. The only thing I can say is that I wish there had been more!

I’m starting to think that this week might be the best time to check out other locations. If things go right, I’ll be able to visit at least two more places. Shinjuku Gyoen and Yushima Tenjin are on my list. With some luck, I might be able to squeeze in one more, which will be a place I’ve never been to before.

If you are in the Suginami area, you should check out the Omiya Hachimangu chrysanthemums one day. The display might be small, but the shrine is an excellent place to visit. Please let me know what you think if you go.
