This shrine is dedicated to General Nogi, a hero of Russo- Japanese War. Nogi is famous for that he killed himself on the death of the Emperor Meiji. This is why this shrine is located near the mausoleum of the Emperor Meiji.

This Shrine is dedicated to Count Nogi Mareske, a general and decorated hero who made the ultimate gesture of loyalty when he and his wife committed ritual suicide straight after the funeral of Emperor Meiji. It is only a short walk from Emperor Meiji's Tomb so worth the little extra time to have a look. We found quite a few buildings in the extensive shrine grounds. There is a bust of Count Nogi just along the path as you walk in. There is also a hall with illustrations depicting major events in his life, and a small old house like that he lived in with his family in Edo when he was young. The shrine itself has two bronze horses rather than the usual lions on either side of the front. If you walk a little to the right of the shrine you will find another shrine to Ebisu, the god of fisherman, workingmen, luck and the guardian of the health of small children. Here at this shrine I placed my coin, woke up the god and said a prayer for safety of fishermen in particular my husband. Walking around the back of the shrine you find a temple and if you walk around the back of this temple you will be asked to pay a donation of 100 yen to enter. We gladly paid the fee and there you will find the graves of Count Nogi and his wife noted by a bust of each. As you continue around you find stone statues of Lucky Cats, Pagodas, Turtle and a frog. Here we also found a pit that we believe was the pit where Count Nogi and his wife commited ritual suicide. There was a lot to see here and we were pleased that we took the effort to go just that bit further along to see it. You can not miss it as it is right next to a school just up from the JR Momoyama station. Hope you enjoy this area as there is so much to see especially if you are interested in Japanese history.
