Located in Fujimi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo Daijingu shrine was built in 1838 as a shrine of the Ise Jingu Shrine in order to allow people in Edo to visit the Ise Shrine, which has been a wish of people since the Edo period.
The shrine has long been known as “Tokyo’s Ise Shrine. The deities enshrined at the shrine are Amaterasu-Okami and Toyoke-Okami.
The deity’s virtues include marriage, safety in the home, prosperity in business, good luck and bad luck, traffic safety, and academic achievement.
During the Hatsumode New Year’s visit, a New Year’s Day festival is held at the shrine, where visitors are served sake from the barrel, Ise’s specialty “akafuku” and oshiruko (sweet red-bean soup). About 40,000 visitors are said to come to the shrine.
The temple is about a 3-minute walk from JR Iidabashi Station, which is the closest station to the shrine.
From the subway station Iidabashi, it is about a 5-minute walk. No parking is available, so public transportation is recommended.
