Things to know

Tokyo Daijingu Shrine is a famous Shinto shrine near Iidabashi station. It is particularly popular with couples, lovers and anyone seeking love because its charms are said to bring good luck to any relationship. A historical reason for this belief is the fact that it was one of the first Shinto shrines ever to hold a wedding ceremony - this was in 1900. The modern Shinto wedding was inspired by Christian weddings while following specific Japanese cultural patterns and symbolism. At the shrine you can pray for relationship success or buy a omamori charm for yourself or your significant other. Tokyo Daijingu is also a top spot for Tanabata, the lovers' festival held in early summer. During the festival, you can write down your wishes on slips of paper and attach them to one of the trees in the shrine.

The Tokyo Daijingu Shrine located less than 5 minutes on foot from Iidabashi station was relatively easy to find, and with it being the first shrine to hold a wedding ceremony and Valentine's Day coming up, I thought it'd be interesting to pop by and have a look. To my great dismay, the sign boards at the shrine did not have information in English (hence the 4 stars), but proved popular with Japanese women as several had queued to buy lucky omamori charms. There was also a box with love fortunes separated according to blood type which I hadn't seen anywhere else before, so that was interesting. Overall, the shrine is worth a short visit before heading to Kagurazaka street.
