Kanda Myojin Shrine has held a special presence in Edo-Tokyo for nearly 1,300 years since its founding in 730.
Revered as a guardian of the shogun, the citizenry, and entirety of the capital in the Edo period (1603–1868), it is today still a popular place to pray for prosperity in home, marriage, and business as well as for warding off evil.
The shrine attracts a stream of visitors paying their respects to “Myojin-sama” every day.
