Tomioka Hachimangu Shrine
There is a small Japanese garden and pond to one side of the shrine area with a few red torii gates.
This shrine is also popular among Japanese tourists because it is one of the ancestral homes of sumo.
On March 10, 1945, the shrine was burnt down by the bombing of Tokyo. The Emperor Hirohito visited the damaged area – after the war, two stone monuments were built in the precincts to commemorate his visit.
Hachimangu is also home to some of Japan’s largest mikoshi.
