Since I have missed visiting the imperial palace (closed) on my last day, I was looking for seeing a few traditional buildings in Japan. It was a pleasant few hours spent on my last day in Tokyo.

This shrine was just rebuilt. Opened in April 2016. The new shrine was made in the traditional way from wood and copper roof etc. The previous shrine, although nice, was painted pre made concrete. This is now Tokyo's newest shrine building. Very clean and well made. Doesn't have the traditional old feel yet, but a good example of perfect craftsmanship.

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
