  • Built on the artificial ground on second floor as is the shrine looks. Tsunami inundation countermeasures was raising it in there. Probably too famous for azalea place, but of course visited the men. Children frolic in the premises, the family dog environment rather than dogs, and Kappa pictures Azalea to water is standing. Did not know you understand I went from nightlights doll, so this Prince to hakozaki district until. Go up the stairs through the building under is the environment.

  • Both Contemporary and traditional architectures exist here to form beautiful views and peaceful atmospheres. An unexpected point but It was impressed me a lot. I think this temple is exclusive to babies and children for praying a happy growth.
  • Beautiful little shrine.wonderful architecture. I recommend going there if you are interested by shrines and temples and you are housing around.
  • During a sea battle of the Genpei War in 1185, the then Emperor (6-years old) and his mother jumped into the ocean with the sacred sword Kusanagi, one of Japan’s three sacred treasures, in hopes of finding sanctuary at the palace believed to exist at the bottom of the sea after facing defeat. Following this, the Suitengu Shrine was created for prayers directed to Emperor Antoku and his mother. Over the years, water and Antoku became associated with childbirth and children, leading to the shrine’s reputation as a place to pray for easy childbirth and conception. I invite you to explore and learn more. Everything is very well-kept and modern at Suitengu.
  • It easy to walk from Suitengu-mae station by Tokyo metro Hanzomon line exit 5. Suitengu is a Shinto shrine, where is devoted to conception and safe childbirth. It is a newest shrine to rebuilt in 2016. The shrine is clean and very interesting.
