Ume Matsuri - Yushima Tenjin Shrine, Feb. 20th

Hello Taggers!

Let's meet up to see beautiful Plum Blossoms!

****************

MEET UP POINT:

Yushima Station (Chiyoda line)

COST: FREE!

TEXT MSG: [masked]

**************

Event Details:

"Yushima Tenjin Shrine has been a popular spot for plum blossom lovers since the Edo period, and crowds still flock there each year to see its 300-odd ume trees in full bloom. The shrine's annual Ume Matsuri hits its peak towards the end of February and is busiest at the weekend, when the natural splendour is complemented with displays of traditional Japanese music and performing arts – plus the added option of tea ceremony, if you've got ¥500 to spare."

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
