Kamakura in January | Shin-en Peony Garden in Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine

January 2020:

We planned to pilgrimage to Seven Lucky Gods along with the first visit to the shrine this year, but it was rainy. We only went to Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine for our first visit this year and saw peonies in the Shin-en peony garden.

At the shrine office, some plum blossoms were blooming.

The peonies in Shin-en peony garden were worth seeing. These peonies had lush petals, so they were very large.
