Not too far from my house is Kameido Tenjin or 亀戸天神社。It's a famous shrine but mostly in February during plum blossom season or April during cherry blossom season. I couldn't have picked a better fall day to go. The skies were bluer than blue and the sun warmed the chilly day.

If you want to get to Kameido Tenjin, you might be able to take a bus. I hate buses so I just took the subway to Kinshicho Station. You can also take the train to Kameido Station. From Kinshicho Station it was about a ten minute walk to the shrine.
It was strange that this shrine was just off a busy street but it was so quiet and peaceful. I saw many who came for the solace. Hopefully you enjoyed this look at Kameido Tenjin.
