“One of the 10 shrines in Tokyo selected by the Meiji Emperor!”
Tokyo has 10 special shrines selected by the Meiji Emperor. He sent imperial messengers to those shrines to hope for a national protection. As Shinagawa Jinja shrine was selected in 1868 by the Meiji Emperor, many Japanese still visit the shrine. It also has a small fountain called ‘Ichiryumanbai’ that is believed to be lucky with money. You may see visitors who wash their coins at this fountain water!
