Hikawa Shrine is one of the oldest shrines in Japan, reportedly founded over 2,400 years ago. It’s the head shrine for about 280 other Hikawa shrines, mostly located in the Kanto region. The shrine complex is located in a vast area of greenery, which includes three sport stadiums, a zoo, a museum, and multiple parks. Hikawa Shrine is dedicated to three kami, including Susanoo, sun goddess Amaterasu’s cheeky brother.
