Tokyo Stroll Supplement: Nihonbashi North
This page is for corrections and additions to the Nihonbashi North chapter of Tokyo Stroll. Updates will be announced on my blog.
Suginomori Jinja (椙森神社)
One of the oldest shrines in Tokyo, held to be roughly 1,000 years old. In the Edo Period this was one of three lottery shrines in the city, lotteries were done here to raise funds for the shrine. This is a stop on the local Shichifukujin pilgrimage as Ebisu is enshrined here. The Ebisugami Festival is held in October. The shrine is also noted for its reitaisai, or grand festival, held every three years, 2018, 2021, etc., when a 1.4 ton mikoshi is carried through the streets. There is a regular annual festival held on varying days in May.
