Morning glories market at Iriya (Iriya Asagao matsuri)
6 – 8 July 2018
Iriya Kishimojin (Shingen-ji Temple)
Every summer, about a hundred thousand pots of morning glories are in glorious bloom for three days in Iriya, a shitamachi (“downtown”) neighbourhood close to Ueno and Asakusa.
During the annual market, from 5 am to 11 pm, some 60 morning glories venders and 80 fair stalls will line Kototoi-dori Street, in and around the precincts of Shingen-ji Temple, popularly known as “Iriya Kishimojin”.
