The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.

A small shrine sandwiched between two buildings in a residential area. We had no problems getting to the shrine from the subway station, the directions given by goggle maps was very clear. There wasn't much of a crowd at the time of our visit, we did not have to wait for too long for our turn to offer our prayers. We had fun washing our money like the locals for good luck. We did not have to spend too much time here.

Tucked away somewhere in Nihonbashi, yet still known to many in Japan and Taiwan. This is a place that people come to pray to get rid of bad luck.

There are 7 shrines in the Nihonbashi area that dedicated to the 7 deities of luck and fortune (shichifukunin). Finding the shrines is like a scavenger hunt. The only big shrine is the Suitengu. All the other are very small and hard to find. From the small one this shrine is the most beautiful. And it is the closest to Nihonbashi (the bridge).

Visiting the shichifukunin is maybe nothing for a first visit to Tokyo or if you are on a tight schedule and have to focus on the major attractions. You can combine the visit to this shrine (and the other six shichifukunin) with a visit to Nihonbashi, the Ningyocho Karakuri Watchtower (you need 2-3 hours to complete) and boat cruise along the river starting directly at Nihonbashi (cruise takes approx 1 hour).

This shrine is available in a very small corner under a big bridge, very close to the stock exchange of Tokyo, just a very small monument to see in 2 minutes, very small but very nice to see, you can visit between places, or if you are dining close by, but not ideal if you have a program and you are choosing between places

I’ve never seen anything like this. The culture of course is so different and peaceful. There were little pot with long handles throughout for good fortune, ring the bells 3 times for good and wealth luck.

Best time to visit is early morning as there are very few people at that time so you can easily take pics.

It is hard to pick out one amazing shrine from others. This is another very nice, peaceful shrine. There are so many, it is hard to choose a favorite.

I went yesterday morning; a rather cloudy day as Typhoon Goni was heading towards Japan after leaving the Philippines. I got off at Kayabacho station and confidently headed on my way. Passed the stock exchange building, saw the Pentel (in hiragana) building across the street and came across a coffee shop (Streamers) then crossed the street and turned left. Walked till I saw the address (Nihonbashikoami in kanji) for the 16th block (BTW there a public restroom across the street) and turned right. As I was heading towards the shrine there were a couple of people leaving and a few more arriving. A couple of men in suits, a woman in office attire (white blouse, blue vest and skirt) and a few other women stopping by to offer quick prayers. One also washed some coins. I washed my hands then looked around as I took pictures. A few more people dropped by to pray. I gave an offering to Benzaiten and prayed then washed a few coins. A woman was consulting the shrine maiden about some ritual to remove bad luck or some such thing. I bought a silk cocoon for 300 yen. I think I will go back when the festival is on and buy some more cocoons and some other talisman.
If you speak Japanese and are familiar with Shinto/Buddhist rituals then I think you will enjoy this visit. My perception that this is a good place is due to the fact that there was a steady stream of visitors as I approached the shrine, while I was there and as I was leaving. The shrine maiden was helpful towards Japanese visitors who had questions and scheduling appointments for rituals. I didn't ask her if she spoke English or if she could explain what the various talismans covered. The silk cocoon has a fortune in it. It's in Japanese.

It was not destroyed by fire during the Pacific War and is famous as a shrine of good fortune. It is also famous as Zeniarai Benzaiten. I visited on the 4th of Golden Week. It took about 15 minutes to worship here.
