The Japanese are a people in love with luck. New ventures, new houses, new babies must be blessed at just the right shrine or temple if they are to get off to an auspicious start. Diving into the popular culture is what takes a trip to Japan from tour-book ordinary to extraordinary and it's so much fun. This book introduces twenty-five of Tokyo's best temples and shrines based not only on their stories, secrets, and beauty, but grouped together exactly the way the Japanese would look at them: those for luck in love, business, happiness, and health.
Every entry has access information via public transportation, including what exit to take out of the station and every step of the way from there – for everyone! Universal Access for visitors is covered in detail for each temple and shrine.
