Yushima Tenmangu, Bunkyo
Categories: Monuments, Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Pay a visit to Yushima Tenmangu, a Shinto shrine dedicated to Tenjin, the "kami" (spirit) of learning. Established in 458 CE in honor of the kami of strength and sports, the shrine was greatly expanded in 1355 to enshrine Tenjin, thus becoming a place of pilgrimage for scholars and thinkers. Today, prospective students arrive at the shrine to offer "ema" (wooden plaques containing prayers) in the hope that they will pass the entrance exams for the nearby university. The grounds have been dotted with "ume" (plum) trees, because Tenjin was known to be particularly fond of them. Yushima Tenmangu is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Tokyo Edition.
