Hie Shrine

Originally located inside the grounds of Edo Castle, this shrine was frequented by Shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa, the founder of the last shogunate of Japan. The enshrined deity was said to be a protector of Edo (the old name for Tokyo) and especially after relocating outside the castle walls, became a significant place of worship for the people of the city.

Hie Shrine is home to the Sanno Festival, which is one of the three great Edo festivals as well as one of the three great festivals of Japan.
