  • Kuramae Station on the Oedo Line and Asakusa Line on the Toei Subway Line (Please note that kuramae station on both lines is not connected), so please note that it is a shrine beside the national sports hall in the past, as it is known that there used to be a national sports hall, it is an area that is impressive to sumo fans as a sacred place of sumo. I think that it is a meteorite that the name of yokozuna can be seen in the stone mark which shows the dedication person and the painting which draws the sumo wrestler who boasts power of old times is decorated in the precincts, too. In such a precinct, there is also a statue of a dog, and i thought something, "ex-dog" that appeared in the classic rakugo is the stage here, it was said that the place. In the water house opposite the statue of such a dog, i also got the oti that a local cat is sleeping with a face that does not eat what for some reason. ().)

  • It is a shrine that sits on Kuramae 3-chome, Taito-ku, about a 5-minute walk from Kuramae Station on the Toei Subway. It was built in 1694 (6 years of Genroku in the Edo period) as Ishishimizu Hachimangu Shrine, and later became the name Kuramae Shrine in conjunction with another shrine. I thought it was a large shrine from the name of the shrine, but it was a small shrine when I visited it.

I said long ago, was doing a sumo in this environment. Located at the larger territories and view your history with nokyo-sho you what donated than the stairway shrine of Minato-ku career, from a very prestigious. There is a theory that one of 8 companies mimics the Big Dipper and Polaris, Edo town-planning of the Tokugawa family (Phecda gamma Ursa major star Gamma Ursae Majoris). In Google maps to mark the eight companies considered each looks have likened to the Big Dipper and the North Star. The Pokemon is? Fill in the Pico cell at the entrance of the shrine.
