In October, 1867, the Edo Period came to an end.
Emperor Meiji changed Edo to “Tokyo”, with Edo Castel as the Imperial Palace, and made it a new capital.
On November 8, 1968 (first year of Meiji era), Emperor Meiji prayed for peace of all people and designated 12 companies as an important shrine.
In 1975, celebrating 50 years of Emperor Showa, They removed two shrine in the distance.
After that, the meaning of tourism became stronger, many people enjoy it.
0-1.What is the order of “Tokyo 10 Shrine” tour?
The order is not decided.
So, let’s take a stroll in your favorite order, whenever you like, with your mind.
I’d like to propose the shortest possible order for you.
※The time shown is what we have looked up at Mr.Google.※
1.Oji shrine (JR · Tokyo Metro Namboku Line: Oji Station)
There is a rare “god of hair” in the precincts.
“Oji Inari shrine” in the neighborhood is known for “Fox Parade New Year’s Eve”, but you can enjoy it even if you visit on the usual day.
[20 minutes] Tokyo Metro Namboku Line
2.Hakusan Shrine(Tokyo Metro Namboku Line: Hon Komagome Station)
Hakusan Shrine is known as “hydrangea”.
If you visit “hydrangea festival”, you can climb Mini Fuji called “Fuji-duka”.
【13 minutes】 walking
【13 minutes】 Metropolitan bus “草6” To Asakusa Kotobuki-machi(Hakusan Ue – Dango Saka-shita)
3.Nezu shrine(5 minutes on foot from Chiyoda Line: Nezu Station · Sendagi Station, Nanboku Line:Tokyo University Station)
There are many Inari shrines with many red torii in Tokyo.
Among them, “Nezu shrine” is popular.
I was overwhelmed by not only the red torii but also the buildings designated as important cultural properties. ※Confirm precautions for taking photos
4.Kanda Myojin Shrine(Chiyoda Line: Yushima Station / Chuo Line / Sobu Line: Ochanomizu Station)
“Kanda Myojin Shrine” has a history of nearly 1,300 years, settled in Edo-Tokyo.
Even so, here is a downtown ,you do not have to get so formal.
Recently “collaboration with Love Live” are also drawing attention.
As you pass through the entrance torii, there is a Shinji-Pond and three bridges follow the Kyushu Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine.
You can cross such a “Taiko Bridge” and take a two-shot of a traditional building and the Sky Tree.
Kameido Tenjin Shrine is famous for “plum” and “wisteria”, so you may visit during that season.
Shiba Daijingu Shrine is one of the leading shrines in Tokyo, which has a history of 1000 years.
In the Edo era, we gathered common people’s faith in Kanto are, and received the reverence of many people as “Ise of Kanto”.
It is a cozy shrine,So I recommend to visit with Zojoji temple.
Shinagawa shrine(Keikyu Main Line: Shinbanba Station)
I love Shinagawa shrine(*￣ー￣*)
There is a lot of red torii in “Ana Inari shrine”, there is “Shinagawa Fuji” that can climb all the time, Mt. Fuji is drawn on the foundation of Guardian dog, there are stone frogs.
A dragon staring at torii is splendid.
Hie Shrine(Tokyo Metro Nanboku Line: Tameike Sanno Station)
Hie Shrine has “Sanno torii”.
The “Sanno torii” has the mountain on top of a typical torii.
“Monkeys(not real)” are here and there, and are shaking smile.
There are also “Inari shrines” where many red torii are lined up, so I recommended for red torii fans.
