Tokyo Daijingu, Chiyoda

4.0
One of the five major Shinto shrines in Tokyo, Tokyo Daijingu enshrines Amaterasu the sun goddess, an ancestral deity of the imperial family. Built in 1880 by the Meiji emperor so that anyone could receive Amaterasu’s legendary blessing without going for a pilgrimage to faraway Isa Grand Shrine, the place grew in popularity as a love shrine. Mostly visited by women, the temple supposedly offers visitors success in relationships and marriage, hence the many love and romance amulets around the complex. Perched on a small hilltop, the shrine can be reached in 10 minutes on foot from Iidabashi station. Make Tokyo Daijingu a centerpiece of your Tokyo vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Tokyo itinerary planning tool .

  • The shrine became a typical fanboy spot, although its historical right. The Group of Ise-Jingu Shrine in Tokyo; What is real? Rolled 触re込mi in the press, as the God of matchmaking attraction impression. In precincts far from near a young woman full of atmosphere zero on a fortune in State between hope and despair. It may engage the appreciate like throw away securely.

  • I visited on Jan 2nd around 5:30pm, but line to exist there was insane! So I went to Kagurazaka for early dinner to kill time and revisit after 7:30pm. There were still people there, but no line! No hustle! Tokyo Daijingu is famous for love. I heard my friend met someone after she visited Tokyo Daijingu ;)
  • The waiting in line to get into the shrine is insanely long... they have prepared a very long lane for waiting so this is a regular thing for them.
  • Tokyo dai jingu is established in Meiji period. This shrine is renowned as God of marriage therefore many women come to worship. If you want to meet nice partner I recommend to go here.
  • Daijingu is the sister shrine to the major ISE shrine. Come to this shrine to pray for good relationships
  • A famous shrine for lovers.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
