We sometimes visit this shrine as it is the closest big one in the city. We feel secured when we are in this shrine. It si very close from Metro "Monzennakacho" station. It is nice to know the atmosphere of Downtown in Tokyo. There are many good restaurants and bars around there. Not so crowded and not so expensive!

Visited this shrine one summer afternoon with my 2nd-grader son. It is a rather big shrine in the downtown area Fukagawa; does not have serenity that you may seek in Kyoto shrines but has its own charm and popularity. I found that, like some shrines, this Hachimangu has small copy shrines of other shrines that enables you to feel like... More

Sumo tournaments were held at the Tomioka Hachiman-gu Shrine in Eastern Edo in the late 1600s. The shrine is dedicated to Hachiman the deity of War. It is located quite near to the Fukagawa Fudo Do Temple and the closest station on the Tokyo Metro is Monzennakacho. It can get quite busy with people moving between the temple and the... More

We went here on a sunday, and there was a market. We were there around 3 pm, and they were packing the market down, but we still got to see and buy some cool stuff. A lot of tea-related things like pots and bowls. Really nice place!

Next to the hotel I stayed in. When I was visiting the shrine, there was a flea market going on, so it was very crowded. But we can still visit the shrine itself and look around. They have very cute omamori (good luck charms), and the omikuji I pulled was "Very Good Luck", so it was a great visit :)... More

Go around midnight on New Year's Eve and eat your way through the street vendor stalls selling just about everything. We always run into a sumo wrestler or two. Sundays there are (weather permitting) antique/flea markets on the grounds where you can stock up on gifts for yourself or friends back home. An out-of-the-way shrine which gives you a different...

Most of the japanese visit the place on the very first days of each year to pray for the year-round well-being therefore it is very very crowded. Each month on the second and fourth sunday there is a free market held.
