Wisteria with Historia, Kameido Tenjinsha


In this article, I introduce wisteria(藤 “Fuji” in Japanese) at Kameido Tenjinsha Koto-Ku,Tokyo,Japan.
Kameido Tenjinsha is built in 1662(Edo period).
So here is loved from many people for a long time.

This picture is old postcard of my collection.
Maybe from Taisho period to early Showa period(previous WW2).It is 1912-1940.
It’s similar to present day. Visitors can feel connection to old days.

This is a statue of Michizane Sugawara at five years old.(I don’t know why five years old.)
He is god of here.
The origin of here is Dazaifu Tenmangu at Fukuoka prefecture,Japan.
So design of garden and architecture is based on Dazaifu Tenmangu.
And that’s why here is god of study.
