A visit to Kameido Tenjinsha during late April or early May affords vibrant and picturesque views of blooming wisteria trees. Established in 1661, the temple enshrines the ninth-century politician and scholar, Sugawara no Michizane, who is said to offer worshippers luck and good favor in exams. The focal point of the temple is its large pond in the front gardens, where you'll find around 200 wisteria trees growing on trellises bordering the pond, and have the chance to traverse traditional-looking, steep-arched bridges, lacquered in red paint. Look out for the koi carp and turtles, resident in the water, and expect busy crowds during the wisteria bloom.
