Nezu Shrine Azalea Festival

9:30am – 5:30pm
¥300 (on the door)

Officially the “Bunkyo Azalea Festival,” this annual event takes place immediately after cherry blossom season at Nezu Shrine. Entering the main shrine is free, but there is a ¥300 fee for entering the hillside garden filled with an explosion of neatly trimmed pink, white, red, and purple azalea bushes.

In normal times, there are food and drink stalls, a market, and performances but all of that is canceled this year. It’s also usually extremely crowded, which will probably still be the case. Going on a weekday is recommended.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
