Address：1-5-3 Jinguumae Shibuya-ku Tokyo-to Japan
There is the grove of the jinja in the city.This grove's name is Meiji jinguu gyoen. Togo jinja is located in front of the Takesita street near the grove.
Enshirined deity of Togo jinja is Togo Heihachirou who broke the Baltic fleet of Russia and leaded the historical victory. This fact that he broke the Baltic fleet called the strongest fleet in the world was surprising all over the world. That's why it can say that you will receive bravery from this jinja.

There has sanctualy which is like an area stopped time in a croweded city. What I visited this jinja in the early morning helped me to feel that impression. I surprised that how quiet there has near the noisy Takesita street.

Recently, I feel that not only Japanese but also foreigners visit jinjas. In fact, many foreigners was visiting Togo jinja. Especialy, I felt that there were many Westerners and Togo Heihachirou is well known world famous.
Togo Heihachirou, the enshrined deity, is a hero of Russo-Japanese war.
He is famous as an admiral who broke the Baltic fleet of Russian by a bold tactic which is called "Togo turn". The victory in this naval battle not only gave a great influence on the trend of Russo-Japanese War but also became a hope of countries which were under pressure from Russia. As one of Japanese, I respect the one of heroes who battled to protect Japan, beated off major country's threat by breaking the Baltic fleet, and led the prosperity of modern Japan.
