During the day merchants from nearby Kabukichō come to this Shintō shrine to pray for the solvency of their business ventures. At night, despite signs asking revellers to refrain, drinking and merrymaking carries over from the nearby bars onto the stairs here. On Sunday the grounds become a flea market , where you’ll find knick-knacks and, possibly, some antiques.
