Fuji-matsuri at Kameido Tenjin Shrine
Kameido Tenjinsha is famous for its wisteria blossom since the Edo period. At present there are about 200 wisteria trees, though they are replanted ones after WWII since previous ones were burnt down by the bombardments during the war. From late April to early May, while the wisterias are blooming, the Fuji-matsuri (藤まつり, literally translated "the Wisteria Festival") will be held.
Many food stalls will be set up in the shrine precincts. Also, music, dances etc. will be performed on weekends and holidays during the festival period.
During the Golden Week, many votive performances are dedicated in the precincts. Shown below are some of them.
Illumination at night
During the Fuji-matsuri, the wisteria flowers will be lighted up at night from sunset to 12pm.
