IF you access from the “Ochanomizu Station of the Marunouchi Line”, you will evade this big torii.
“Zuishin-Mon” means the gate to worship the God who prevent the incoming evil.
Parents are pushed down their little lions in the valley.
The little lions will climb the cliff and go back their parents.
The parents admit only little lions,who can climb up the cliff as “their children” .
This image shows such a story.
This Daikokusama is the largest in Japan as the stone .

▼【Official Sire】Kanda Myojin Shrine
Near the Kanda Myojin, There is “Yushima Seido”.
I recommend that you visit together.
The Five Dynasties Shogun of Edo period : Tsunayoshi Tokugawa was founded this building in Yushima 1690, to ensure the promotion of Confucianism.
In addition, Temple Pagoda and Gordon of home school in the private residence of ShinobuOka have moved here.
This is the beginning of the current “Yushima Seido”.
Speaking of Confucianism, Confucius sama! There is the largest “Confucius statue” in the world.
