Atago Shrine, Minato

(4.2/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Climb the steep ancient stairs leading to Atago Shrine, a Shinto place of worship built in 1603. The main deity Homusubi no Mikoto protects the residents from fire, and legend says that whoever climbs to the top and prays will have luck in life. Given the fact that the shrine lies in the midst of Tokyo's business center, don't be surprised to see suited-up businesspeople coming in haste. On the top of the 26 m (85 ft) hill, a vista spreads across the business district and buildings. A small pond, a Zen garden, and devotees add to the soothing and spiritual ambiance. Enjoy a meal at the onsite restaurant. Arrange your visit to Atago Shrine and discover more family-friendly attractions in Tokyo using our Tokyo vacation route planner.

  • Saw Mt. Atago, the NHK broadcasting Museum nature and then leave in the precincts of the shrine. Success Hill legend in the horse ran down and got off. Doubt that down the road the success or injury that tumbled down the steep stairs and slope so I don't think got none and then climb again. That was still elevation is 25 m and Destroyer "ATAGO" originally in Ainu means Japan in that smaller Maruyama, to stay afloat in the sea than Jomon Hill

Then the stairs origins new year visited the promotion. You can also climb on top of the mikuji can pull and wishes for the new year luck called the Deauville and Omagh may buy the Equator call Moree. Note When reached by stairs with the stroller or not as long as next to another. Now with both hands and mouth rinse and toss a coin this year, let us all wish the promotion!

  • One of my favorite spots in the area. The final stretch of my morning run, go up the 60+ very steep stairs, cool down up top to the sound of water and the fish jumping around in the water. Salute the Gods of Water and Fire, start the day. :) The steps are steep but definitely manageable. Go at your own pace.
  • Nice place above the city noises. Really relaxing atmosphere over the streets of Tokyo.
  • Steep stairs that suddenly infesting in Tokyo of the middle.
  • Ingress defense here
