Yoyogi Hachimangu Shrine 代々木八幡宮

Yoyogi Hachiman Shrine, 5-1-1 Yoyogi, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo

Have your prayer answered at this Kamakura-style shrine

Yoyogi Hachimangu Shrine used to be a lively village 4,500 years ago. This shrine was founded in 1212, during the Kamakura Period, and dedicated to the war god Hachiman. Torii gates and temples built with stones tinted by green and grey give the historic site a peaceful atmosphere. The surroundings are dense with trees.

You'll find Yoyogi Hachimangu Shrine most crowded during the Goldfish Festival held on the 4th Sunday in May and the Autumn Festival on September 22nd-23rd. Locals will tell you to pray to the gods to have your dreams come true.
