Outline

Suitengu, which is well known by its blessing “easy delivery, pregnancy, drowning” is located at Nihombashi Kakigara-cho. The shrine was transferred to Edo in 1818 and is rebuilt as part of commemorative Events of the 200th Anniversary. We think it primarily should be for pregnant woman, so design all facilities by base isolated system, reinforced Concrete that provide fire-resistance performance. Shrine pavilion is covered with pure wood made by shrine carpenters. They express traditional western-style beautifully.
