Okunitama-jinja Shrine is one of Tokyo's oldest and most visited shrines

Okunitama-jinja Shrine is one of Tokyo's oldest shrines, with a history of nearly 2,000 years. Located at the center of Fuchu City, it is considered one of the five major shrines of Tokyo along with Meiji Jingu, Yasukuni Jinja Shrine, Hie Jinja, and Tokyo Daijingu.

Every year Okunitama-jinja Shrine holds its Kurayami festival in spring, while in fall it holds its lively Chestnut Festival (Kuri Matsuri), which features singing and dancing, hundreds of paper lanterns, a parade of floats, and, of course, the area's famous chestnuts. It's also a popular shrine to visit for New Year's hatsumode. About 500,000 people visit each New Year's.
