A Shinto shrine located in Wakabayashi, Setagaya City, Tokyo. The shrine is dedicated to Yoshida Shoin, an intellectual who organized the Shokason-juku private school and who educated many reform-oriented samurai during the closing days of the Edo period. The shrine was built by Shoin's former students in 1882. Shoin is viewed as a god of scholarly learning, and many people visit the shrine to pray for success in matters such as school entrance exams.
