It´s getting warmer and warmer in Tokyo. The winter is over soon and the spring is just knocking on the door. That means it is time for the plumtrees to bloom. Every year from the beginning of February the plumtrees in Tokyo start to bloom.
The Kameido Tenjinsha Shrine northeast of Tokyo celebrates every year the plum festival. You can find a big variety of plumtrees in many different colors. If the trees are fully bloom you can smell their sweetness everywhere.
Also the shrine has a small park with a pond and red japanese style bridges. It is very nice to walk around and enjoy the flowers there. I recommend to go there doing the week. Especially during the plum festival it can get very crowded. At the weekend they will also sell typical festivalfood around the park.
