Tokyo Daijingu

  Aug 8th, 2010

Tokyo Daijingu is located near Iidabashi Station in Tokyo. The Shrine is descended from the famous Ise Jingu Shrine in Mie-ken. Tokyo Daijingu is said to be a strong spiritual source for helping couples create good relationships and so has become a popular place for weddings. On week days it is often crowded, particularly with women, who line up to buy good luck charms and omikuji.
