You will find this shrine just south of Shinagawa station.It has an impressive entrance at street level and a series of steep steps up to the shrine itslef which is quite small.There is not a lot of English signage but some and worth a look.
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
