5-31-26 Hakusan, Bunkyo City, Tokyo
2024-6-8 - 2024-6-16

Located in central Tokyo, Bunkyo City has a charming, old-fashioned atmosphere and is known for its rich nature and beautiful flowers. Visitors and residents can enjoy seasonal flowers throughout the year. Bunkyo holds five major flower festivals annually, beginning with the Plum Festival in February. In early summer, over 3,000 hydrangeas around Hakusan-jinja Shrine and Hakusan Park come into bloom, brightening up the city during Japan's rainy season. At Hakusan-jinja Shrine, the main site of the Bunkyo Hydrangea Festival, a number of street stands selling potted hydrangeas and other festive items line the path to the shrine.
