Tokyo Daijingu Shrine, Chiyoda

4.1
One of the five major Shinto shrines in Tokyo, Tokyo Daijingu Shrine 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.

  • If I went to in early January last year, leaving the station and line up to now Yam, I gave up. In mid-went a little late this year, but before the close of the seven processions. Lined up about 40 minutes or so I pray. So long lined up my column runs pretty damn well, we pray.

  • About 5 minutes walk from iidabashi station. But filled with people for new year's day I did not like. Season started getting organized beyond the intersection near the station column. ★ I love power spot to get the blessings of the God of marriage is called o-ISE and Tokyo is familiar, but is popular in so many young people. It is nice and everyone bears.

  • Came here for hatsumode, the queue took around 2 hours before I reached the offering box. There was booth offering amazake and wagashi at the side, really warmed me up after queueing for 2 hours in the cold weather.
  • Power spot in the middle of the big city Tokyo.
  • 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 ;)
  • 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.
  • 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.

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.
