Nezu-jinja is one of the oldest Shinto shrines in Japan – the legend says that it is established over 1,900 years ago by the prince Yamato Takeru no Mikoto in Sendagi and in 1706 the 5th shogun Tsunayoshi relocated it to Nezu, Tokyo.  The azalea garden with 50 varieties of 3,000 azaleas makes it one of the most impressive touristic spots in Tokyo during the Spring.
