Hie Jinjya, Chiyoda

4.1
#12 of 2,042 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.

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