Nezu Shrine Azalea Festival

9:00am – 5:30pm
¥200 (advance sales)

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 ¥200 fee for entering the hillside garden filled with an explosion of neatly trimmed pink, white, red, and purple, azalea bushes.

As with the cherry blossoms this year (2019) the azaleas are also out slightly early, so they will likely be a little faded when May arrives.
