A must-see for those planning a girls' trip! Power spots in Tokyo related to love

In general, people tend to think that shrines and temples for matchmaking are mostly located in rural areas, but in fact, there are surprisingly many such places in Tokyo. There are many such places in Tokyo, and you can get the same benefits as the famous spots in the provinces while you are in Tokyo. In this article, we'll introduce you to some power spots in Tokyo that are good for your love life.

Izumo Taisha Tokyo

Speaking of Izumo Taisha, it is especially famous as the god of marriage in Shimane Prefecture. However, it may not be well known that there is a branch shrine of Izumo Taisha in Tokyo as well. The shrine has the same deity as the head office as a spirit. The Tokyo branch shrine located in Roppongi also has the same benefits as Izumo Taisha.

Tokyo Daijingu (the Grand Shrine of Tokyo)

Tokyo Daijingu was created as a farewell hall to the Ise Jingu Shrine and has been popularly known as the "Oise-sama of Tokyo". It's a shrine with a long history, but the heart mark on the roof of the shrine and other unexpected places is really cute.

Some of the love fortunes are unique, such as the one with a Japanese paper doll and love advice written on it, or the one with a scented Japanese poem about love. In addition, there are many other items such as "knotting cards" to pray for love, "love success and happiness key amulets" in the shape of keys, and "wish letters" where you can write your wishes and put them in a box to have them prayed for. This is a shrine that every girl who is looking for love or marriage should visit at least once.
