On Sunday with Luca and Chizuko I went to Nezu, where in Nezujinja they celebrate the azalea festival, Tsutsuji matsuri. In there you can see all sorts of azalea, hybrids, in all the possible colors and sizes. The entrance to the temple is imponent, the courtyard is crowded, on one side ou can see the azalea plants assaulted by the Japanese armed with cameras. One point: to admire closely the flowers there was a fee to be paid, like in a museum. Few coins, yes, but we had to pay. So we paid, and went along a narrow paved path to wonder, take pictures ans relax. Amazing were the long and sneaking orange Torii around the area,running in all directions. In the middle of the courtyard a small pond, with a romantic bridge on it, and a river with turtles. Many turtles. Craftsmen, artists, people selling all sorts of food were there, of course, like in all the festivals. Here something catches my attention: a super clever instrument (invented in the future I guess) to keep drinks warm..yes, a bare gas pipe, a pot and a cap with holes which the cans we put through so they couls stay warm. Museum stuff, so to say.
