Yushima Tenmangu (YOKO_1301)

Yushima Tenmangu, or Yushima Tenjin is located near Ueno, the central part of Tokyo. It enshrines Sugawara Michizane who is well known as a god of learning. This is why the shrine is popular among students preparing for an exam. The shrine is also famous for its plum blossoms. A lot of people visit there in early spring.

You can buy a good luck charm or good luck pencils to pass the exam. I found a fortune paper machine shaped dancing lion called “Shishimai” in Japanese.
