Kishimojindo, Toshima

(150+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Religious Site
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.
