14.KANDA MYOJIN/Shinto shrine

Kandamyojin was constructed in 730, during the Nara period. During the Edo period, it was known to protect people from generals to the general public as “Edo Sochinju”. It is said that Shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa prayed before going into battle and also before he went to fight the battle of Sekigahara which he won. Since then people have worshiped “Kandamyojin” before games/matches,, taking entrance exams and for business. Also there is another god “Daikoku-sama” for marriage. Great to come here for a bit of a rest as it is near Akihabara for a brief getaway from the town overflowing with articles!
