Kameido Tenjin Shrine

I had been told about this shrine by a friend who knew my love for plants and gardening.

The shrine is very well kept and despite it being in the middle of the city, it was restful and had a beautiful garden. 

It is for the garden that we came up visit it on Mothers Day, hoping that the wisteria were still in bloom. But alas they weren’t.  As the spring has been rather warm, I’m not surprised. Still it was lovely and despite the crowds, so peaceful. Possibly because of the gardens, which I am a sucker for! We were only there for about 20 minutes, but I think that when I’m there when the wisteria are in bloom, I could be there for ages photographing them, the bridges and the pond.  
  I’m definitely returning next spring for their festival: Kameido Tenjin Shrine Wisteria Festival and of course to see the wisteria in bloom!

About Cheryl

I am a child of God, a wife and a mother of 4 children. Some days are good. Some days are frustrating. Some days are just plain insane. In between the mayhem, I loved to go for walks with our mutt, potter in the garden and enjoy the beauty that surrounded us. That all changed in August 2012 when we waved goodbye to our mutt and garden, our eldest at Uni in Gloucester and moved to Tokyo for 4 months. And yes- we are still here...
