Only 5 minutes away from Shinagawa Shrine, Ebara Shrine was founded in 709 and has a famous festival involving mikoshi being carried through water during June.
The shrine is just a small diversion from the Old Tokaido route. If you look to the west from Shinagawa Bridge, you will see a vermillion painted bridge slightly upstream that crosses to the shrine.
Ebara Shrine is more ornate than Shinagawa shrine. The carvings are detailed and it certainly looks stunning.
Although it’s hard to tell from the surface, a major motorway runs underground through here. The Yamate Tunnel runs directly under this channeled section of the Meguro River.
