Atago Shrine


Atago Shrine is located in Minato Ward and is famous for its stairway to success. It is within walking distance from Kamiyacho, Onarimon, and Toranomon. Why not take a stroll on the shrine grounds, surrounded by sacred trees, while praying for good business fortune? If you are fit, why not climb the steep 86 steps from the Otorii gate to the main shrine?In the Edo period, there was a brave man who climbed up there on horseback at the order of Shogun Iemitsu. At that time they could see the Boso Peninsula!
