Iriya Morning Glory Festival (Asagao matsuri) 2019
6 – 8 July 2019
Iriya Kishimojin (Shingen-ji Temple)
Morning glories mark summer in Japan, giving a cooling effect visually – in our collective imagination dating to the Edo period.
The town of Iriya, a neighbourhood close to Ueno and Asakusa, will host the annual Morning Glory Festival this year again. Morning glories in dark pink, blue and other shades will be in glorious bloom for three days.
