This shrine is located in Kameido, Koto-ku, north of JR Kameido Station, and is well known for its wisteria festival.
Since the shrine enshrines Sugawara Michizane, the god of learning, many students visit the shrine to pray for success in entrance examinations. It is also famous for its beautiful flowers.
The deities enshrined at the shrine are Ama-no-Okami (Lord Michizane Sugawara) and Amabohi-no-Mikoto (ancestral deity of the Sugawara family).
The deity’s virtues include academic achievement, success in examinations, protection from bad luck, traffic safety, and prosperity in business.
During the New Year’s visit, a special New Year’s ceremony is held and about 150,000 worshippers visit the shrine.
From the nearest station, it is a 15-minute walk from the North Exit of JR Kameido Station.
It is also a 15-minute walk from Kameido Station on the Tobu Line. Parking space for about 15 cars is available, but it gets crowded, so we recommend using public transportation or nearby parking lots.
