Located in central Tokyo, the city of Bunkyo still maintains the atmosphere of old Edo and is known for its richness in nature and beautiful flowers. "Bunkyo Five Major Flower Festivals" are held beginning with the Plum Festival in February and we can enjoy seasonal flowers throughout the year. In early summer, over 3,000 hydrangea plants growing at Hakusan Jinja Shrine through Hakusan Park come into bloom and brighten up the city during the rainy season. At Hakusan Jinja Shrine, which is the main site of the Hydrangea Festival, a number of street stands selling hydrangea planters and other festive items line up along the approach to the shrine to welcome visitors.
