Looking for some romance? Want to ask the gods of Japan for help and support in your love life? If you do, then there is only one place to go - Tokyo Daijingu! This popular shrine in Japan is famous for making your love life work out just the way you want it to.
Tokyo Daijingu first came to Tokyo in the Edo period. The Meiji Emperor wanted a satellite shrine of Mie Prefecture's Ise Shrine in Tokyo, so he had one built in Hibiya. Later, Tokyo Daijingu moved to where it is now – Iidabashi - after the Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923. Ever since then, it has been a famous shrine in the urban Tokyo.
Tokyo Daijingu is also the birthplace of Shinto-style weddings. The first Shinto-style wedding was held by the emperor in 1901 (before then, weddings were normally held at homes). Since that event, having weddings at a shrine has become a popular custom that is still continued today. If you are lucky, you may be able to see a wedding on the day you visit the shrine! The elegance of the wedding at Tokyo Daijingu is very unique, so it is an occasion to behold.
What I also recommend that you do at Tokyo Daijingu is to buy an Omamori (good-luck amulet). They can be purchased at the shrine and are very popular among young people (especially women) in Japan. There are types that can be worn on to your mobile phone or placed in your wallet, so you can take your luck around everywhere you go. If you do so, you may find your destined soul mate right away! Even if you already have a partner, there are also Omamoris for couples, so wearing them may be certain to make your love last forever!
Visit Tokyo Daijingu! I truly hope your love life will go well!
