Atago Jinja愛宕神社


This shrine located in Atago’s office zone in Tokyo’s Minato City is built atop the natural mountain Mt. Atago. It was constructed under the orders of Tokugawa Ieyasu in 1603 for the deity of fire protection, and its principle enshrined deity is the god of fire “Homusubi-no-mikoto.” The stone steps at the front are called the “Shusse no Ishidan” (Stairway of Success), well-known for an occasion when a samurai rode his horse up and down the steps and earned the praise of shogun Tokugawa Iemitsu. The premises of the shrine are like an oasis offering opportunities to enjoy cherry blossoms and autumn foliage, and they are often visited by many of the nearby office workers.

          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It’s hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world’s tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you’re in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
