Ganshoin Cherry Blossom Festival


During this annual festival at Ganshoin temple, you can enjoy eating snacks purchased from temporary vendors and tea offered by the temple while appreciating the beauty of the cherry blossoms along the temple’s approach. During the festival—a local tradition in the Karida neighborhood where the temple is located—entry to the main hall is free of charge so you can study the ceiling painting by Hokusai to your heart’s content.
