    This shrine located in the Tomioka district of Tokyo’s Koto City is affectionately known as the “Hachiman-sama of Fukagawa” and was established in 1624. The shrine attracted religious faith from the commoners as a tutelary shrine under the Tokugawa shogun family, and every year around August 15th the Fukagawa Hachiman Matsuri (Fukagawa Matsuri) procession is held which is said to be one of the three largest festivals of Edo, boasting Japan’s largest ichi-no-miya mikoshi (portable shrine). It is also famous as the birthplace of Edo’s Kanjin-zumo, and there are many stone monuments on the premises such as the Yokozuna Stone, a stone monument to commend successive yokozuna sumo wrestlers.
