One of Japan’s famous temples with over ten million visitors per year. It is known for warding off evil (Yakuyoke Daishi). Every day without fail, a priest will hold a prayer ceremony (Gomakito) for the wishes of believers to be fulfilled.
Early Morning Sightseeing
You can visit the shrine from early in the morning; this is also the time when it is less crowded. The Nakamise (street market) is also a fun place to walk around after visiting the shrine.
