Shinagawa Jinja Shrine (品川神社)
This shrine in the Kita-Shinagawa district of Tokyo’s Shinagawa City is one of 10 Tokyo shrines where prayers are offered for the protection of Tokyo and people’s peace and security, and it enshrines Daikokuten (the god of wealth) who is one of the Tokai Shichifukujin (seven gods of fortune). The shrine was established by shogun Minamoto no Yoritomo in 1187 to enshrine Amenohirinome-no-Mikoto, the guardian deity for safety at sea and for answering of prayers. On the premises are many sights to see such as the soryu torii gate with sculptures of soryu dragons (with a dragon climbing on the left pillar and a dragon descending on the right pillar), and the ichiryumanbai spring where legend has it that washing money with the water and then subsequently using that money will enable one to receive substantially more money in return.

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.
