Lovely little shrine, a peaceful and green enclave to visit. Don’t miss the smaller steps up to the left. Plenty deities to choose from!

I walked by this temple many times going to/from train station. It has a long history and not crowded so you can take your time reading and looking.

If you are in Shinagawa you shouldn’t miss it. In the middle of the town it is really lovely and without any noise.

Visited Jan 3, there is quite many people visiting for the 7 Lucky Gods pilgrimage (starting with this shrine). The concrete steps going up are quite steep. This shrine is designated by Emperor Meiji as a place of worship to pray for the Japan prosperity.

Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with
luxury residential buildings and the scene is
constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama
park and Togoshi park are great places to see
beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as
well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a
post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish
old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa
