Tomioka Hachimangu, Koto

(190+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
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.

  • I went to a good-luck charm. Firstfruits fee is 5000 yen-, so I rate is that I feel. Rituals are done properly and the staff is helpful. Souvenir pack of clams!

  • We went sightseeing the Tomioka hachimangu shrine was close because it was time to meet up. Makes sense, it felt good to go once again.

  • Located next to the Fukagawa fudo. It is famous for its traffic safety prayer. It is now near the shrine for the construction, from the front difficult. This kind of quiet shrine located near the city center is a strange feeling. Worth a look is.
