Tokyo Daijingu Shrine 東京大神宮

2-4-1 Fujimi Chiyoda-ku Tokyo

Be lucky in love at this shrine for lovebirds

If you are looking to tie the knot, perhaps you should try your luck at this major urban shrine. One of Tokyo's top five shrines, Tokyo Daijingu is dedicated to all things relationship and love-related.

Tips

  • Discovering your love fortune by buying an omikuji fortune, available in English
  • Checking out the lines of colorful ema plaques where worshippers write their wishes

Back in 1900 Tokyo Daijingu Shrine was the first shrine to hold a wedding ceremony, and ever since it has been known as the place to pray for finding a spouse or ensuring a successful marriage. You will see lots of young women lined up to pray or buy a lucky omamori charm here, in hopes of improving their fortunes in love.

As this is a branch of Ise-jingu Shrine—Japan's most sacred shrine—the major deities Amaterasu and Touyouke no Okami are worshiped here. They share the shrine with three other deities connected with the creation and growth of living things, so it may come as little surprise that the shrine is sought out by people seeking to improve their relationships.
