Hie Jinja Shrine (日枝神社)

This shrine located in the Nagatacho district of Tokyo’s Chiyoda City is considered to have begun when Ota Dokan constructed the Edo Castle in 1478 and transferred the guardian deity of Kawagoe Hie Jinja Shrine. After that, it became the tutelary shrine of Edo Castle and the deity was revered as the guardian of the Imperial Palace. Since the current shaden (main building) has been reconstructed, there are 123 works of art on the ceiling of the haiden (worship hall) to commemorate the 50th anniversary since reconstruction. The Sanno torii gate built in the direction of Akasaka is also famous for its unusual shape. Every year in June the Sanno Festival is held which is one of the big three Edo festivals, and the approximately 300-meter long festival procession is quite a sight.

Its truly amazing how there are shrines and temples that take the hustle and bustle out of the city with a few steps into them. It is a relaxing feature that more urban planners should incorporate.

There’s a good photo op with the red gates, but, otherwise, just average. I would do asakusa or Meiji

          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It’s hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world’s tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you’re in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
