Jan/1 - Feb/24, 2020 Winter Peony at Ueno Toshogu Shrine3.3
from 1/1 '20 to 2/24 '20
Peony flowers have flowers blooming in winter and spring.
Because flowers fall by the weight of the snow, peony flowers which blooms in winter will fall, so we will create an enclosure to guard and protect the flowers.
Winter peony which is vulnerable to changes in the environment and does not readily bloom was regarded as good luck if it blooms neatly and has been treasured.
It is said that the peony grown with boosting technology of gardening is called "Hyakka no Oh (百花の王: the King of all Flowers)".
You can enjoy the pretty and gorgeous flowers in the historical premises.

Well worth a visit even though there wasn’t any flowers really out. It’s a quiet and peaceful place and found the whole area somewhere to just chill out and soak up Japan. A photographers dream.
Wheelchair accessible and stroller friendly. Kids will enjoy this place as well. Really enjoyed the surrounding temple, the copper lanterns and all the beautiful offerings. The shrine was stunning and spent nearly an hour here.

A small but beautiful shrine with the main building having a gold plating adding to its beauty. Set in a peaceful garden with a zoo next to it, gives one lots of sight seeing opportunities.

A lovely find in the gardens and a perfect zen spot after a zoo visit. Stunning Shrine and area and felt very peaceful. You can pay to go inside the Shrine perimeter but it is not possible to see inside the Shrine.

Its gold... goldmine aside from the crowded park. Gold details against black looks stunning. Small but details work makes you so stop there and appreciate the craftsmanship. make you feel pray a bit for peace.

Beautiful place just in the premises near national museum. Especially the five storied Pagoda near it and the Hiroshima flame provided beautiful lessons to generations to come
