Ebara Jinja Shrine


"Striking Mixed Architecture"

Ebara achieved fame when the Meiji emperor visited here just before taking up residence in Tokyo. The main shrine building is noteworthy because of its mixed architecture--a gongen-style roof and kasuga-style beams. The floral and animal motifs on the carvings demonstrate the considerable skill of mid-19th century craftsmen. A fascinating item in the adjacent museum is a large wooden meal-gong, shaped like a fish. It is reputed to have ensured that Shinagawa Bay was well stocked for the local fishermen.
