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.

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.

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.

A pity one cannot see the internals of the shrine but still it’s a splendid view to take in, with all the glittering gold dazzling your eyes...

Absolutely stunning shrine set in the backdrop of ueno Park. The grounds are immaculate and it is a welcome visit and often a lot quieter than its more well known counterpart sensoji. It does cost 500 yen to explore and this is more to fund the upkeep of this historic site.

It is free to look at the lantern and gate from the outside, but it is worth seeing the main hall by paying the admission fee.
The main hall decorated with gold leaf, compared with the polar color of Nikko Toshogu Shrine,
Calmness is felt in the glitter, and it feels preferable.
When I visited, the golden lit by the setting sun appeared more deeply.
If you came to Ueno Park, I would like you to come by all means.
