Atago Shrine, Minato

#20 of 1,340 in Historic Sites in Tokyo
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. Using our online itinerary creator, Tokyo attractions like Atago Shrine can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • ATAGO shrine located in the 23 wards in the highest part of the 80 some steep stairs is the main gate.  Everyone has climbed from and were bowed in front of the Torii gate and feels nice. Know a very good atmosphere of the Shrine precincts of NHK Museum (admission free) is person who knows good spots.  And visited about 20 years ago when they greatly renewed exhibits and fulfilling your impressive enough.  Descended the steep stair (shrine who was long line) after the shrine visit also the gentle ascent due to your peace of mind about.... Through the Park on its feet, sought new Midtown chanter. G/W to say, there is tremendous crowd. Restaurants are 満pai, while this situation continues.  Anyway green city are quite good so well. Do you think?, but I would take no shrinkage compared, it visited the capital of European countries 10.

  • Climb the ladder slopes. Climb to the top is a little shortness of breath and a sacred atmosphere. In addition to Toranomon hills sites. Healed my heart, was released.

  • Shrine of Mt. Atago, steep stone steps called gentle ascent steeper of two hills, loose stone is steeper of two hills known as the stone steps. An example of risk and stand up! Mount ATAGO is like the tallest mountain in huadu district in the, located within the crust. Has become the way to Kamiyacho station and down the stone stairs behind the shrine.

  • 11 / 1 / 2017 ladder of a famous shrine. This staircase. It is impossible to go at once. On the way back it's scary, not (laughs) struggled, climbed to healed at the shrine and the atmosphere. Is a Shinto shrine is worth the visit, there is a lot of good Koi swimming in ponds.

  • If blessings from the feeling when I was up for the job motivation, listening to the story of the stone steps of the shrine and want to try different work. I visited on that kind of feeling. Is climbed the steeper of two hills, ladder stairs to Kitui than meets the eye. Step width is reduced because it fell down as I managed to have reached the Summit. Company location is very good, unlike the urban middle about nature is rich. Not the stamp because it came a bit late, but live in koi ponds or environment? Hot cat. Many visitors after the woman street edge and wanted their own range of work spread. Thank you next visit I'm going to.

  • Opened the Tokugawa Ieyasu and co from Kyoto atagoyama daigongen shrine. I was drawn in Ukiyo-e as a vantage point. Fire of spirit (home sub) is currently a fire God in God as a main shrine enshrines has been. Cherry trees are pretty, but pretty fresh. A voracious carp and the occasional cat. Stone steps in the steep slope always scary. Return of the family descend from Kamiya-Cho side stairway or gentle ascent (way down from the ladder of success! ). So even if you're not confident in the legs a little bit away in an elevator safety reassurance. Every year on Jun 23.24 Lantern plant fairs are 2 years each of September has a portable shrine for migration.
