After we entered Toshogu, the first must see spot is the 3 monkeys graving. It is used to teach student about an old Chinese saying 非禮勿視,非禮勿聽,非禮勿言

Of course you have to pay the entrance fee for Toshogu. Due to public holiday, a long queue was expected. However this queue broke my record in Florence.

The first picture shows the queue. Can you find the entrance? I am sure not because the picture does not show the entrance. The gate in the far middle is just the entrance gate, where there are at least 50 meter to the ticketing booth and the actual entrance. There are about 100 people behind me too.

The next picture shows the entrance gate you see in the first picture.

The first one is Rinnoji 輪王寺. It was a surprise that there were some sakura alive.

The main reason that I came to Utsunomiya was not because of Wisteria, but because of Toshogu 日光東照宮, a world heritage and the bury place of Tokugawa Ieyasu 德川家康.

We went to Nikko 日光市 next morning. The entrance of Toshogu has a nice bridge called Shinkyo 神橋.

Utsunomiya is the captial of Gyoza. There is a Gyoza dumpling statue at the train station.

In total, we tasted 3 different Gyoza shops and they are all good.

They have other flowers indeed.

BTW, they also have ice cream with Wisteria flavour. I tasted it and found it like tasting 紫花油......... Embarrassed

Too much flower will make me feel boring. So after I took a few more pictures, I started to find something fun, like shooting the tiny bugs and bees...... Grin

In fact this is just a flower show with lots of different species of Wisteria. They put them and prune them in different shapes.

After we settled down our bags in hotel, we went to Ashigaka Flower Park 足利花卉公園 to see Wisteria 紫藤花. This park holds an exhibition of Wisteria every year in May.
