Nogi Shrine (乃木神社 Nogi-jinja?) was built in 1917 and dedicated to General Nogi Maresuke after his death. It is located in Tokyo, Japan. The shrine compound includes an example of Western architecture constructed during the Meiji period. It is famous as the site where General Nogi and his wife chose to kill themselves after the Meiji Emperor's death. The shrine was opened soon after this event but was destroyed during the 1945 air raids. There, Nogi Maresuke (乃木希典, 乃木希典大人之命?) is celebrated as a Shinto kami. There are several Nogi Shrines in Japan.
