Yushima Shrine

Local name湯島天神
LocationTokyo, Japan

One of Tokyo's many beautiful shrines. This one's history reaches back to the 5th century AD. Nowadays, the shrine is mostly popular with students because of the Kami of Learning enshrined there.

Because of that, the temple gets busiest during the season of examinations, when it is pretty common to find it stuffed full with groups of youngsters. They are all seeking the kami's blessing to help with passing their exams.
