Tomigaoka Hachimangu Shrine tomigaokahachimanguu
Long-lived guardian angel who is enshrined from the end of the Heian Period
This shrine is thought to have been established at the end of the Nara era, and the local Shinto deity enshrined there is believed to protect the birthplaces of people from the area. Towards the end of the Edo era it was renowned as a famous place in the suburbs of Edo, and of particular interest is the fact that rows of cherry trees along Omotesando in this location are depicted in Utagawa Hiroshige’s ‘One Hundred Famous Views of Edo’. The Fuji burial mound in the grounds of the shrine is a designated cultural property of Koto City.
