The Suitengu Shrine should be seen, and seen from every angle, and vantage point. The appearance seems to change, depending on where one is viewing it from. The interior is serene, even with the number of people, who journey there - one knows immediately, that they are in a sacred place, and it seems that everyone else feels the same... More

Although the temple area size is not too large, I see this temple has a strong link with the dog. I can not conclude anything related to the relationship between the temple with dogs. However, from the information I get, people come here to pray for those who are pregnant in order to get to safety during pregnancy and give... More

At the edge of the Amazake Yokocho area, you can visit the 7 Lucky Shrines in this area...for those seeking wealth, luck, prosperity, and more. Check out the famous Amazake Yokocho area specialty shops - like Shigemore-eishindo, which makes sweet bean cakes in the shape of the Seven Lucky Gods (of the nearby Shrines) or the Japanese Kite Museum.

Nice little shrine, not usually very special, except on Inu no Hi, aka Dog Day, which occurs once or twice a month. Then thousands of young parents flock to the shrine with their babies to have them blessed. It's very surprising to see the queue lined up around the entire block to visit the shrine, well worth a watch if... More

Some good food places surround a sweet temple where the pregnant and want to be pregnant go to seek a blessing.

I always visit here next to Tsukiji Market. Many pregnant women visit here to pray for their easy birth.

Staying in Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi

Neighborhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
