Kotohiragu Shrine


by Joe Jones

"Mariners' Good Luck"

This sub-shrine of the Kyogoku family's famous Kotohiragu Shrine on the island of Shikoku, is nestled in the congested Tokyo business district of Toranomon. A branch of the Kyogoku family moved to Tokyo in 1679 and established this shrine in honor of the seamanship and navigation god, Kompira-san. Fortunately the bombing in 1945 did not demolish the splendid torii gate, which is plated in copper and dates to 1821. The shrine has become a popular place to get good luck charms.
