The best power spot in Tokyo that inherits the ancient Shinto religion.
Koshiki Shinto is a belief system that emerged spontaneously in Japan from ancient times—founded in 1882 in Kanda, Tokyo, to revive the ancient Shinto tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation since ancient times. Unlike the "Nirei-Nihakushu-Ichirei" used by most Shinto shrines, the official way of worship is "Nirei-Shihakushu-Ichirei" (two bows, four-beat, one bow).
When the shrine was first built, it was believed to be beneficial for "curing illness," and "Hibuse" (fire prevention), and many worshippers visited the shrine. Afterward, in 1915, they received an oracle from God telling them to "move immediately to the west. The shrine was relocated to its current location between 1919 and 1922. After the relocation, the shrine was spared from the Great Kanto Earthquake and the fires of World War II and thus became known for its blessings to "ward off calamities. The shrine is also said to be blessed for any wish, as it enshrines several deities from Japanese mythology.
For those who are physically unable to visit the shrine in person, such as those who live far away from the shrine, try using the "Internet Yohai" (to worship the gods and Buddha from a distance), which is available on the official website of Sakura Jingu Shrine.
