Jindai Botanical Gardens rose festival 2021

In 2021, I went to many memorable rose festivals. An outstanding one was at Jindai Botanical Gardens. I saw some great flower events that year, so I went with high levels of enthusiasm. The weather for it was great/

Even going there was enjoyable. I only had to catch the Keio-Inokashira line to Kichijoji and then a bus. That was my only complaint, albeit a small one. Just before I got on, I saw it was packed. It was seriously crowded. So, off we went, packed in like sardines. That did put a slight downer on the beginning of the day.

Fortunately, we got out of the can soon. Most people got off at the NTT Data Center in Mitaka. That made me feel a lot better. Suddenly I had a seat, and there was only one other person on the bus. I could breathe again. The trip was soon over.


It was good getting back to Jindai Botanical Garden after not having gone for a long time. The flowers were great. And the icing on the cake was that not many people were there. It was just like the previous day at Kyu-Furukawa Gardens, but better. And this time I got the type of clouds I love. They were all nice and fluffy. The good things didn’t end there, though.

Jindai was almost devoid of people. When that happens, it is one of the most fabulous places in Tokyo for flower photography. The central area where the roses are so packed together. It is a sea of color. Going to these gardens on a weekday has its advantages.

The only real problem was the wind. I couldn’t use a tripod, so I did handheld bracketing. That made things rather tricky. I had to wait for a break in the gusts before hitting the shutter button. It still worked out well in the end. Well, I think it did.

In 2021, I also went to the Kyu-Furukawa rose festival. That event was excellent too. But if you asked me which was better, I wouldn’t know what to say! Tokyo is lucky with its flowers.

Anyway, I need to go to Jindai Botanical Garden more often. That bus trip is quite relaxing, and it gives lots of options as you can get it from many stations in the area. Anyway, I hope you read my main article about it. Please check out its rose festival if you are in Tokyo one day.
