|Tōgō Shrine (東郷神社)|
|Glossary of Shinto|
The Tōgō Shrine (東郷神社 Tōgō-jinja) was established in 1940 and dedicated to Gensui (or 'Marshal-Admiral') The Marquis Tōgō Heihachirō shortly after his death. This shrine was destroyed by the Bombing of Tokyo, but was rebuilt in 1964. It is located in Harajuku, Tokyo, Japan.
A small museum and a bookshop dedicated to The Marquis Tōgō are located within the grounds of the shrine.
The physical remains of the Gensui (or Grand Admiral) himself are interred at Tama Cemetery in Tokyo. According to The Telegraph, the Tōgō Shrine took possession in 2005 of Admiral Tōgō's original battle flag raised at the Battle of Tsushima; the flag had been in Britain since 1911.
As for General Nogi Maresuke who had several shrines throughout Japan named for him (Nogi Shrine), there are other Tōgō shrines, for example there is one at Tsuyazaki, Fukuoka, within earshot of the Battle of Tsushima won by The Marquis Tōgō.
