A “matchmaking” shrine surrounded by office buildings: Toranomon Kotohiragu Shrine

The history of Toranomon Kotohiragu Shrine dates back to 1679. What makes this shrine especially interesting is the fact that while the city has been growing, it fully integrated the shrine into the modern cityscape and the shrine became one with the surrounding office buildings. The buildings arching over parts of the shrine, like a roof, also protects it from the rain. Kotohiragu Shrine is a special place where you can still find traces of various Japanese religious traditions.
