Ueno Toshogu Shrine Winter Peony3.3
from 1/1 '19 to 2/24 '19
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.

Bare, windswept, and cold when we visited on Christmas Eve. Most likely nicer on a summer day with more greenery and atmosphere, or in the late evening when the lanterns are lit. The gold leaf is worth a photo or two but you'll need to pay to enter the grounds. It's really only worth visiting if you're in the area or around Ueno pond/zoo. Has a small pagoda, some stone lanterns, and quite a few small outbuildings.

Very nice feelings visiting during one of the best week this year to see the Sakura. Entrance fee is required to get in but somehow not yet allowed to get inside the Shrine in Apr 19.
Recommended and would love to come back here again during Sakura blossom weeks.

It was an awesome experience. This place is a heaven. I don't know about other time but go this place when Sakura is there.

Very interesting Shinto Temple erected in 1627. Extremely interesting is the Chinese-style door (Kara mon). The temple is declared a national treasure.
Without buying a ticket you can reach the door (Kara mon). With a ticket you can reach the temple itself, but you can not enter it.
The ticket covers a very interesting garden with Chinese peony (April - May) and is priced at 1000 JPY.
