Bunkyo Azalea Festival At The Nezu Shrine

From late April to mid May, the garden of the Nezu Shrine bursts into life, as thousands of azalea bushes bloom, dabbing the green hills with their rainbow-colored foliage. This garden is over three hundred years old and contains a hundred different species of azalea. Nezu’s Azalea Festival is a highly-anticipated event, and when the flowers are in full bloom, the garden can get extremely crowded. Whether cherry trees or azaleas, it seems nothing drives Tokyo crazier than blossoming flowers.

    Wow! You have nice pictures of azaleas in full bloom. I arrived in Tokyo during latter part of May and was a week late to see this. Hoping to see this next time though. 🙂
