The origin of Yasukuni Jinja Shrine is Shokonsha established at Kudan in Tokyo in the second year of the Meiji era (1869) by the will of the Emperor Meiji. In 1879, it was renamed Yasukuni Jinja Shrine. 2,466,000 spirits of those killed in battle from the end of the Edo era through the Pacific War are enshrined here. Yushukan on the grounds displays articles of those enshrined and related historical materials.
The yellow foliage of large ginkgo tree-lined with a height of more than 20 meters continuing from the torii are colorful and wonderful. In the Shinchi Teien which restored the leading garden around Japan of the early Meiji era, you can enjoy the autumn foliage of Japanese maple.
