I visited Akasaka Hikawa Shrine, which is known as Tokyo’s power spot.
1.I recommend you to enter Akasaka Hikawa Shrine from Hikawa-zaka
There are some entrances to Akasaka Hikawa Shrine.
The above picture is the entrance on the street connecting Moto-Hikawa Saka(Slope or Hill) and Hikawa Saka.
From here, you can see the main hall.
But I recommend you to enter Akasaka Hikawa Shrine from Hikawa-zaka.
There is a pond.
You can visit Shiawase(happy)Inari shrine.
It is a shrine affiliated with Katsu-Kaisyu who lived in Akasaka from the end of the Tokugawa period.
You can pray at Saigyou Inari shrine.
The stone guard dog which is in the place which climbed the stairs is very nice.
The big ginkgo which looks behind is a natural treasure,400 years old.
The pair of guardian dogs of “A” has two children.
You will see the child on the left.
Please look for the little boy(girl?) in the lower right.
2.The main hall is protected by a fence
Around the main hall is surrounded by a fence and it is protected.
Sakuramon has dignity.
The decoration window of the fence is also elegant.
The main hall is elegant with red paint.
It seems to be enjoyable even in autumn colors.
