Daijingu is considered in Japan to be a place for people who wish to pray for a successful relationship or marriage. The shrine itself is a beautiful styled structure and has both a main shrine and auxiliary shrine of Ise Jingu - the most important Shinto shrine in Japan. Again.. yet another shrine

The shrine is located in a quiet neighborhood, 4 minuete walk from metro station. Try to go early to avoid big crowds as the shrine is very small.

7/7 is a Japanese festival in relation to relationships there was long queue to go in to pray, but if you just want to see the decoration of the temple, there is a side door to go in

Once you've seen one of these they all look the same. The cool thing here is that sumo wrestlers come here, and cute girls come here to get love blessings. Good luck.

It's a very small shrine as compared to Meiji-jingu but the details of a Japanese shrine and gardens are still very precise and beautiful. It's mostly visited by women and the shrine had the most love and romance amulets that are really pretty and nicer than what is in other shrines.

This shrine is one of the top three shrines in Japan, that people come to to pray for love and relationships. It gets really busy on the weekends; but hey, you never know, you might meet the love of your life waiting in the same line as you! Lol. Its about 97% women here, but there there were some guys...

Neighbourhood Profile
Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this day, and there are long-standing restaurants with geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
