Namiyoke Inari Shrine

Attractions, Religious buildings and sites Tsukiji

This shrine was built in the Edo era at what was then the water's edge. As new land was artificially created, the seashore became susceptible to flooding. The name of the shrine translates to 'protection from waves' – praying here was to ensure the safety of Edo's shores.
