Nezu Shrine, Tokyo just before dusk 5th May 2019

The Azaleas for which Nezu shrine is famous (in addition to it being one of Tokyo's oldest shrines established in 1705) were in full bloom and spectacular when we visited at the end of a pleasant Sunday. However because it was dusk the main festival stalls had closed up and the walkways between the flowers were also closed. The views were still spectacular and the shrine grounds could still be wandered around. The failing light meant it was difficult to get many decent photos but the plants and architecture are still pretty spectacular.

This was the scene opposite the entrance

 The main entrance with it's Tori gate

 think this is a list of all the Azalea varieties on display

We exited via a different route
