#12 of 1,746 in Historic Sites in Tokyo
Find a place of spirituality in the center of the city during a visit to Hie Jinjya. Established during the 14th century as part of a wider fort, the shrine was moved to its current location in the 17th century. Dedicated to the Tokugawa shoguns who led the country during the Edo era, the complex enshrines the rulers as "kami" (gods). Though destroyed during the bombing of Tokyo during World War II, the shrine has been redeveloped to match its original appearance, apart from an escalator that now takes weary workers up to pay their respects after a long day at the office.

  • It was very crowded in Shichigosan, and it was a heavy traffic jam that I did not know how long to wait for the parking lot. It is a very popular shrine. Both the Akasaka side and the Nagata-cho side will climb the stairs, but the tunnel stairs of the red torii gate will be the entrance from the Akasaka side.

  • We went to the Shinzhi Shrine only because it was near the hotel and passed by, but deeply felt its cultural atmosphere. The exterior of the shrine is very present, with handrails that feel the convergence of the present generation.
