Tomioka Hachimangu, Koto

3.6
#36 of 1,334 in Historic Sites in Tokyo
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.

  • Murder has occurred in the money of the priest fray. We recommend to visit again because even though always crowded new year's day this year is less than history is famous for.
