Kishimojindo, Toshima

3.9
Tucked away in a quiet, residential part of the city, you'll find the ancient shrine of Kishimojindo. The present complex was constructed in 1664 around the shrine, where worshippers pray to the goddess Kishimojin, a deity from India who protected the birth of babies and the nurturing of children. Look out for the large, picturesque gingko trees, planted as a natural monument on the site by the city's metropolitan government. Put Kishimojindo into our Tokyo route builder website to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Tokyo.

  • It is a temple of temple worship the auspicious deep Kishibojin safe delivery and child rearing. The more than 350 years ago, the venerable gongen shrines, specified nationally in 2016. Kishibojin is written on the plaque in front of the temple, but that demon. And was taking a pause onto the temple-like demon statues are supporting roof. I'm changing the impression allayed awfully demon character, but both are lucky I don't know. Candy shop incidentally is in the Genroku era or is very historic. I-Chaya in your environment in rice crackers we have chic of Dango dango.

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. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
