How are you doing during these cold new year days?
I went to Kanda shrine to do Hatsumode which is the first visit to shrine of the Japanese new year.
You can access here by using JR Chuo/Sobu Line dropping off at Ochanomizu station.
It is about 20 minutes from UNO UENO.
The shrine was built more than 1,200 years ago.
Because the god of this shrine brings you good luck with business, a lot of business men come and pray in January.
Here is one the most visited shrine for Hatsumode in Tokyo
There is ambience of Japanese history.
Not only for Hatsumode, but also when you would like to organize your mind, I strongly recommend going to Kanda shrine.
