Kameido Tenjin Shrine, also known as Shitamachi-no Tenjin-sama (Tenjin shrine of downtown Tokyo) has an incredibly beautiful setting including ponds and a wonderful arched bridge—right in the center of Tokyo. The ponds are a popular attraction in summer, with lots of tortoise swimming around. It's also famous for its plum blossoms in February and the Fuji Matsuri (Wisteria Festival) in late April and May.

Travelling to various places and locations in Japan for over 20 years now, I want to share my experiences and also hear about destinations that I still have not been to in the land of the rising sun. Am a photography enthusiast and love to do slow shutter blue hour photography in Tokyo.
