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.

Kameido Tenjinsha Reviews
お休みの日にお散歩がてら行きました。 七五三の時期でしたが、人はあまりいなく外国人の方がちらほらいる程度で、ゆっくりお散歩が出来ました。 more »I went for a walk on my day off. It was the time of Shichigosan, but there were not many people, and the foreigner was able to take a walk slowly.
今は無きこの中の保育園に通っていました。私たちにとっては、心休まる場所ですが、わざわざ東京都以外から観光に来る価値があるか？と問われると、う～んと思います。池があり雰囲気はありますが、テニスコート2面くらいの広さしかないので、見るべきものはありません。ただ、神社内の茶店で飲むラムネや、春?の藤祭りはきれいですので、時間に余裕があれば、お近くにいたした際はお試しくださいね。 more »I went to the nursery school in this without it now. For us, it's a place to rest, but is it worth coming to seethesight from outside Of Tokyo? When asked, I think. There is a pond and there is an atmosphere, but there is nothing to see because it does not spread about two tennis courts. However, the ramune and spring wisteria festivals that you drink at the tea shop in the shrine are beautiful, so if you have time, please try it when you are near us.
