Tomioka Hachimangu, Koto

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.

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.

For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
