When it comes to seasonal springtime blooms, plum blossoms are some of the prettiest, and there are a number of festivals dedicated to their beauty. One such event is the Kameido Tenjin Shrine Plum Festival which takes place in Tokyo each year.
The grounds of this shrine are filled with around 300 plum trees blossoming in different shades ranging from white to dark pink, creating a picturesque atmosphere. As this event depends on the seasons, the dates can vary slightly from year to year, but plan for mid-February through to early March.
The shrine also has a famous wisteria festival which takes place from mid April through to early May.
