A silent shrine Kameido-Tenjin

Kameido-Tenjin little-known good places


Kameido-tenjin is a shrine placed on Koutou-ku, Tokyo. Sugawara-no-Mitizane, who is known as god of studies, is enshrined here. If I describe about this shrine, its history should be told since 1661.


Sugawara-Ohtorii-Nobusuke, Mitizane’s descendant, dedicated a statue of god to here. That’s the beginning.

Shrine of study

Students preparing for examination and their parents often come here, then wish for their success in study. Me? of course I did when I was a student, and it was granted. After all, the god of study is enshrined.


A statue of dog, named “Oinu-sama”, is considered that it cures people if they give it coat of salt.
