This beautiful shrine it's a must in Tokyo; even if you don't have much time, you should go to this beautiful place; you can learn about purification ritual before entering the shrine and get some information on historical facts.

The Shrine sits on high ground on the road that runs due south from Shinagawa Station in Kitashinagawa near the Shinbama station. The entrance area is impressive with steep stone steps up to a small garden and relatively small shrine that dates back to 1187.

Starting point of the Shinagawa Shichifukujin - 7 gods/temples walk - has to be completed within a few weeks of New Year's Day. It is a 16th century Shrine.

This is oe of the oldest shrines I Tokyo. It involves quite a bit of walking to et to it. Very popular with locals and visitors abd tourisks. So...it's crowded. I guess it's a must see. Also it is in a beautiful park and brides are often seen there during weddings.

This temple dates back to the 1600. It is low profile but worth a visit. It is within walking distance of hotels in Shinagawa.

Not to be missed. On Saturday, when I vidited, there were many traditional weddings, which was like from a movie. Go in the morning and avoid the heat - in hot months and potentially crowds. A nice way to learn about Shintu religion. I visited on a tour, which added to the information value of the visit.

I stopped here while walking by. It is a very peaceful place in the middle of the city rush. No turist, only one local man and an eldery woman. The visit takes perhaps 10-15 minutes. I would not go here just for the shrine, though.

It was very nice and peaceful. A local sweet elderly woman showed us around. There was the language barrier but we understood what she meant.

A contrast to some of the larger touristy shrines we've visited - we were the only tourists there. The other attendees were all locals going about their regular worship, which was lovely and peaceful to observe from a respectful distance. I might not venture out to Shinagawa especially to see this, but if you find yourself in the area, it's... More

Staying in Shinagawa / Gotanda

Neighbourhood Profile
Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with luxury residential buildings and the scene is constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama park and Togoshi park are great places to see beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa and Ebara are very popular. It's a great place to get in touch with the old Edo atmosphere on a pleasure boat cruising along the canal. The neighboring area around Gotanda station is a study in modern contrasts filled with unique restaurants and a lively nightlife.
