Fuji-matsuri, or the Wisteria Festival, celebrates the blooming of wisteria flowers in Japan and occurs at Kameido Tenjin Shrine in Tokyo as well as other locations across the country. It is held late April to early May. The festival is named after the stunning wisteria (fuji in Japanese), which is known for its cascading clusters of flowers in shades of purple, pink, white, and sometimes blue.

One of the most famous locations for celebrating Fuji-matsuri is the Kameido Tenjin Shrine in Tokyo, known for its beautiful wisteria arbors that reflect elegantly on the water beneath its bridges, creating a picturesque scene.

Another notable venue for the Fuji-matsuri is the Ashikaga Flower Park in Tochigi Prefecture, north of Tokyo. The festival features one of Japan’s oldest and biggest wisteria trees, which creates a canopy of flowers that is mesmerizing. The park illuminates the wisteria at night.
