Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Located in the business district of Nihonbashi, this tiny shrine was first established in the ninth century, and was moved around during the area’s redevelopment. Now, Fukutoku Shrine is nestled near the Coredo Muromachi shopping centre and is a small spot of tranquility in the concrete jungle.

The shrine is considered a 'power spot' for winning the lottery, as it was one of the rare shrines authorised to sell lottery tickets in the Edo period (1603-1868). Even if you’re not planning on entering the lottery, it’s still worth a visit to pick up an omamori, a lucky Japanese amulet for success or good fortune.
