TOKYO MAP - SHINAGAWA
Ebara Shrine is a Shinto Shrine in Shinagawa Ward of Tokyo, that is said to have been established by the God of Water in 709AD. In 1062, Minamoto Yoritomo visited Ebara Shrine and prayed for a victory against Abe Clan. Since then Ebara Shrine has been the head shrine to protect Shinagawa. The object of enshrinement at Ebara Shrine is Ebisu (god of fishing).
SHINAGAWA MUSEUMS and ART GALLERIES
The Museum of Maritime Science is a six-story museum shaped like a full-sized ocean liner, unsurprisingly devoted to ships. One of the main displays, a gigantic turbine engine, was actually set in place first and the museum was built around it. There are a few historic vessels on the adjacent wharf. The Museum of Maritime Science is in Odaiba Tokyo.
Shinagawa Aquarium, in Shinagawa central Tokyo, features tunnel tank with a walk through tunnel where you can view sea creatures swimming over head and on both sides of you. Shinagawa Aquarium also features shows with dolphins and sea lions.
