Kokugakuin University Shinto Museum
+81 3 5466 0162
This speciality museum has memorabilia from the brief reign of of the Taisho Emperor (1912-1926). Coronation garments, priests' clothing, drums and other items associated with Shinto
rituals—such as purification and fertility—are gathered together in a small room for display purposes. Shinto was once the official state religion of Japan and is still practiced by millions, although the Emperor is no longer considered a deity. The exhibits are well worth a look.
