In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.

Yushima Tenjin Shrine (also known as Yushima Tenmangu Shrine) is widely known as the home of the kami (deity) of scholars. This year's chrysanthemum festival showcases 2,000 lovingly tended flowers in full bloom, spread across the shrine grounds. The highlight of the festival is the chrysanthemum dolls. As part of an unusual tradition, chrysanthemums are arranged to look like human figures. Also on show are spectacular ozukuri (dome-shaped arrays of hundreds of blossoms), giant cascading blooms and carefully arranged tray landscapes. Treat yourself to a leisurely day surrounded by gorgeous chrysanthemums.
