The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Ochanomizu / Akihabara / Kanda
Ochanomizu boasts its academic foundations starting with Yushima Seido, the birthplace of modern day Japanese education. The area has kept its college town feel with several university campuses. If you head towards Jinbocho, you'll find musical instrument and sports equipment shops, and an area of used bookstores for students and anyone interested in literature and the arts. Akihabara is well-known for its computer and electronic goods stores, and is now hugely popular as the must-visit mecca for people interested in anime and games. Kanda is an office district where you can find loads of reasonably priced izakayas popular with professionals who stop to eat and drink before making their way home.

KANDA MYOJIN
Kanda Myojin is a 1300-year-old shrine located in Sotokanda, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo.
The deities are enshrined at lchinomiya, Daikoku-sama (matchmaking), Ninomiya, Ebisu-sama (prosperous business), Sannomiya, and Taira no Masakado(game luck).
Because it is close to the business district of Tokyo, it is a shrine that is crowded with many business people and many worshipers to benefit.

Jan 2020
The Kanda Myojin Shrine has the long tradition as the protector Shrine for downtown Tokyo and was given special status by Shogun. It is still worshiped by Tokyo resident and business widely. The souvenir shop sells many interesting Japanese merchandise related to or blessed by Kanda Myojin priests and also a good place for a quick rest. Traditional Japanese shrine is next to Akihabara district, famous for latest electronic gadgets, games, anime and other soft culture. Great place to visit to fee old Tokyo, just nest to the latest.

The god of the business and the god of matchmaking

This shrine has a long history, built 730 A.D.
It played an important role in era Edo, had been decided as a guardian shrine of a castle Edo cause it located north-east direction from the castle. (In the philosophy of Yin and Yan, this direction is called Kimon and it is believed to be a door for the spirits and devil.)
Today it is modernized, they are selling a wide range of a ‘Kawaii’ charm designed with a variety of characters from animation.
The building is colored red and decorated with fabric. Fabric flapped in the wind is a beautiful sight.
It is a host of the god of the business and the god of matchmaking, therewith it is always crowded.
They seasonally hold Chinowa-kuguri, the event of go through the object made from rope, and that is said to clean up your sins and defilement.

Kanda Myojin Shrine Hall
Nov 2019 • Friends
The Kanda Myojin Shrine is an ancient sanctuary in Tokyo, where you can ask for good luck, prosperity and marriage. Like many Shintoist shrines it has its "Temisu", as it is like a pond or water fountain, where with a wooden ladle, hands and mouth are washed to "purify" before entering the temple.

We spend most of the time in the Hall, which is a hall built inside the temple grounds, a modern structure that contrasts with the oldness of the place. Upstairs in his living room, we stayed inside for the international competition of karaoke for which we had came to Tokyo this year(Karaoke World Championships), but we still enjoyed the sight of the surrounding structures: a temple beauty in red, green and gold.

In the Kanda Myojin Shrine Hall we could also enjoy the restaurant with Japanese food from the ground floor, and we saw many curiosities and souvenirs to buy.

Like all temples, the place has a kind of large patio, where they told us several festivals are famous throughout the year.

Much more peaceful shrine
Dec 2019 • Family
After visiting the crowded Senso-Ji temple this was a pleasant alternative.

Another great temple region but much quieter and full of more worshipers and less crowds.

Surprisingly quiet
Oct 2019
This attractive and quite large shrine complex was surprisingly empty when we visited, in contrast to many other, superficially similar, temples and shrines! We enjoyed wandering around and taking in the calm atmosphere.

Good shrine for first time visitors
Jul 2019 • Friends
For first time visitors to a Shinto shrine, Kanda Shrine would be a good shrine to visit as there are some English explanations here. The souvenir shop area also doubles as a cultural center where tourist information is available along with the chance to try on traditional Japanese clothing. Many wooden wish plaques are decorated with anime images probably because of its proximity to Akihabara.
