Shinjuku Jyuniso Kumano-jinja Shrine, built in the Muromachi Period (1336 - 1573), houses the local deity of the Tsunohazu region (today's Kabukicho and Nishi-Shinjuku).
Here you will find the "Jyuniso-no-hi" monument, the "Shichi-nin Yakusha-zu Ema" and the "Shiki-sanban Hounougaku", which are votive tablets donated to the shrine from Kabuki actors.
You can also see a washbasin with inscriptions from the famed Kyouka composer Ota Nampo (Shokusanjin), and other cultural treasures.
