The Azalea Festival at Nezu Shrine in Tokyo’s Bunkyo ward is one of my favorite flower festivals. Lots of fun, lots of people in a beautiful and historic place. Probably the main reason why I like it so much is because of the colors. The reds, the whites, and the pinks are so vivid! These photos are from 2019. It was a memorable event that year.
Yes, some of the bushes hadn’t bloomed. But, when taken as a whole, the hill looked superb. The azaleas were a sea of color. I dare say they were the prettiest I’d seen up until that date. Going in the afternoon was the best idea. The sun illuminated all the important things. If you go in the morning, there will be more shadows due to the hill.
And the weather was great too. It wasn’t too cold nor too warm. The temperature was at that perfect spot. I certainly couldn’t make any complaints.
As you can see, visitors were lacking. I had hoped more would be there. Sometimes we want to show these events exactly as they are. If you go on a weekend or public holiday, you will see the true number of people who turn up for this event. I wanted to show that.
If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below in the space provided. And if you went to or have been to this event, I’d love to hear your thoughts about it. It is, without a doubt, one of the best flower events in Tokyo. You can read my complete article about Nezu Shrine here.
