Tomioka Hachimangu, Koto

(3.8/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Take in the rich craftsmanship of Tomioka Hachimangu, a large shrine dedicated to the god Hachiman--with a bit of a sporting heritage. Established in 1627, the shrine was destroyed in the bombing of Tokyo on March 10, 1945, and had to be rebuilt. It also represents the birthplace of kanjin-zumō in 1684, thus making it the direct origin of Japan's modern-day professional sumo. Around the site you'll see various monuments to this sport, including the Grand Champion monument, listing the names of champion sumo wrestlers in history. The Fukagawa Hachiman Matsuri water fight festival happens here annually in late August. Tomioka Hachimangu is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Tokyo Edition.

  • Tomioka Hachiman shrine called the Fukagawa Hachiman from local residents, have been popular. The main front, a stout fight. Pillars of the vermilion-lacquered in bright colors and shine in the sky well. Beside the main building is a monument of splendid, Grand Champion sumo wrestler.
