Once you've survived the crazy crowds of Nishiki, reward yourself with this shrine at the end. Hard to miss, just look for the lanterns. Walk along the side toward the back to see additional areas.

Surrounded by chaos and commerce this shrine is a respite from the crazy. It also has well maintained restrooms.

At the end of Nishiki Market street, Nishiki Tenmangu is dedicated to Sugawarano Michizane, a scholar of the Heian Period. It is a very small schrine. So, don't overlook!

Small shrine but a lot of people almost toward the end of Nishiki market. There are many drug store, desert shops, souvenir shops, and restaurants nearby.

It's located at the end of nishiki street, and is connected to the shopping streets. At first we didn't recognize that it was a shrine - but all the lanterns that decorate the gate is impressive! There were a lot of locals and tourists together...More

Worth a visit when walking around the Shin Kyogoku shopping street. A small and neat shine and you will be attracted by the lanterns outside the shine

Located slap bang in the busy shopping area a lovely little temple well worth a quick visit - looks really pretty at night when the lanterns are lit you will probably stumble on it when shopping so no need to make a special visit

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
