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.

This is one of the first shrines I visited during my maiden voyage to Japan. These shrines hold a special place in my heart and I do my best to say hello to them every time I visit.
I also try to buy an omamori when I visit. Visit at around 9:00/10:00 AM to catch the shrine priestesses manning the shrine store and purchase the 'omamori'.

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.

Pretty shrine, a little bit away from the crowded masses in the Ueno Park.

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

A beautiful shrine located right next to the Ueno Zoo. It is built in 1627 bearing typical Edo features like the gold leaf trimmings and carvings. People came to pray for happiness, good health and longevity as well as educational success.
It's free to watch the Karamon and anything outside the Shrine boundary. The entrance fee of ¥500 to enter the boundary however was not considered justified. First, the Shrine was forbidden to enter for preservation purposes. Second, the area was really small scale. The only thing left was to admire the gold foiled structure from afar.
