I regret missing azaleas in full bloom at Nezu Shrine this year. In the precinct, there are 3000 azalea trees. During the period from the late April to the early May, these flowers are at their peak with various colors. Almost all buildings in Nezu Shrine have miraculously remained intact since they were built in the Edo(now Tokyo) period(1603-1867), by avoiding World War Ⅱ air raid. Speaking of vermillion Torii(an open gate to Shinto Shrine), many Torii like a tunnel in Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto are famous. Otome Inari Shrine in the same compound as Nezu Shrine also has a Torii tunnel. These Torii were donated by worshippers, expressing gratitude as wishes were granted. Nezu Shrine is worth visting, including walking around neighborhood. I would like to guide you in or around Tokyo. Why don't you join my tour?
