A long-running Chrysanthemum festival, this event features some much-loved examples of the autumnal flower as well as some creative displays. Known for the stunning Tomoe Nishiki kind which is deep red and seen in Katsushika Hokusai paintings, they have some stunning examples.

With many kinds of cultivated chrysanthemums being lost due to the difficulty of growing them, the dedication shown by the temple is admirable in itself. As well as the rare examples, they will also have displays of around 2,000 flowers as well as three figures crafted from flowers.

This year they will be modeled after characters from popular NHK TV show “Saigo Dori”.

The display will be open from 6am until sunset and there will be no evening illuminations.
