Tokyo Daijingu ShrineFree: All time

Out of love and out of luck? If you’re in Tokyo, pay a visit to Tokyo Daijingu Shrine – the city’s most powerful shrine when it comes to matters of the heart. Many Japanese, especially young females, frequent the Daijingu to pray for successful love lives. On weekends, find an epic queue stretching all the way to the torii gate. Police were about for crowd control. Shrine workers will instruct worshippers to get into two lines. If such is the case, go for the right line, it’s more potent (supposedly). The shrine itself isn’t much. But hey, just may be you’ll find your new love in your queue!
