Super shrine, a lot to see and experience. Great time. We feed they koi with some crackers and were caught. We thought we were in trouble and a couple minutes later a caretaker came out with real koi food. He showed us how to feed them. It was very nice of him to include us in his duties.

This is the main Hachiman in Tokyo, the shrine dedicated to theGod of war.
In the precinct, there are two sets of stone monuments, monuments of Yokozuna and of Ozeki, top and second ranks of Sumo wrestlers.

We came partially to see the shrine, but
mainly to visit the Sunday antiques market.

The market proved to be much larger than
expected. The many stalls varied between
good quality antique pottery, bronze
figures and pictures. There were also many
stalls selling clothing and modern junk.

The better quality items were generally highly
priced. I saw a very attractive bronze dragon,
but the vendor was most reluctant to reduce
the 28,000 yen asking price by more than
3,000 yen which did not match my valuation
of 15,000 yen.

Several other stalls offered more generous
reductions, but the items were too large or
too heavy for the flight back to Europe.

Nonetheless, this was a very interesting way
to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon,
with the added bonus of the small but charming
shrine and the large pond, with two red bridges
and some magnificent carp.

Only a short trip from central Tokyo on the Ginza/
Tokyo Metro lines, so worth a few hours on a Sunday
morning.

There is an antique market here in the first, second and fourth Sunday of each month. It is lots of fun to stroll around the temple grounds and see all the interesting objects for sale. It is helpful to be able to speak some Japanese, but if you don't, the sellers are usually patient and helpful. It is a nice way to spend a Sunday, but be sure to go earlier in the day as they pack up at about 3PM. Take the Toei Oedo Subway line to Monzen-Nakacho station.
