Hie Jinja 日枝神社

2-10-5 Nagatacho Chiyoda-ku Tokyo

The shrine that watched over pre-modern Tokyo

A short walk from the Imperial Palace grounds, Hie Jinja is held in high reverence by the people of Tokyo, enshrining a deity that has long been designated the city’s protector. The grounds and the surrounding area come alive in June for the annual Sanno Festival, among the three largest in Japan. You can easily combine a visit to the Hie Jinja with attractions in Akasaka.
