Igusa Hachimangu Shrine Will Give You a Luck!

You have a bad day?
Or you feel unlucky?
Then you’d better pay homage at Igusa Hachimangu Shrine.

Igusa Hachimangu Shrine is a Japanese shrine in Tokyo with a long history. It is said that this shrine was originally built in the Heian Period when samurais had much less power than that of several aristocrats. The Heian period started in 794 and ended about 900 years ago, so Igusa Hachimangu has a really long history.

After the original one was built, several shoguns prayed for winning the war. For example, Minamoto no Yoritomo did it before his final battle to rule Japan against the enemy force in the northern Japan. Finally he won the battle and found the Kamakura shogunate which means he became the practical ruler of Japan.

The god of Igusa Hachimangu Shrine has some power.

1. Solving troubles around you smoothly and speedily.
2. Giving you an opportunity when you messed up.

Minamoto no Yoritomo defeated the war and was about to die before his battle against the north Japanese.

Are you ready for some sort of “revenge”? Then Igusa Hachimangu Shrine will give you a special power just like it did for Minamoto no Yoritomo.
