Surrounded by deep forests and rich nature, Meiji Shrine is known as an oasis in the central Tokyo Metropolitan area. The shrine holds its annual spring grand festival (from Apr. 29 to May 3), and a variety of presentations of traditional performing arts will be dedicated to the shrine by their leading masters. The scheduled performances are bugaku (Apr. 29, from 11:00), Noh and Kyogen (May 2, from 11:30), sankyoku (May 2, from 15:30), hogaku and hobu (May 3, from 11:45), Satsuma biwa (May 3, from 14:30), and others. Visitors to the festival may also enjoy nature in the shrine's precincts along with flowers including azaleas, yamabuki (Kerria japonica), oleaceae (nanja-monja or hitotsubatago), and other spring-to-early summer blooms.
