The shrine is also widely revered as a village shrine in the Oshiage and Narihirabashi area where the Oshinari shopping arcade is located, and although it is located just across the street from Asakusa Street, it is a very quiet and elegant shrine.

It is also close to the Tokyo Sky Tree, which can be seen from the top of the shrine and it’s a popular place to take a photo of the old and new together.
