HIe shrine

“Hie Shrine” is located within 5 minutes from Akasaka Station on the Chiyoda Line and Tameike Sanno Station on the Namboku Line and Ginza Line. This shrine sits near Nagatacho, the political center known for having the Diet Building and the Prime Minister’s Office. The main deity is Oyamakui no Kami. Also known as “Sanno-sama” .

The Inari Sando to Hie Shrine is a very popular spot for foreign tourists. The line of vermilion torii gates is as outstanding as the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto and you surely want to take a photo here. In recent years, one of the last shrines in the precincts, “Sarutahiko Shrine,” has been gaining a lot of attention as a power spot. The god “Sarutahiko God” who guides things in a good direction is enshrined, and it is said that this shrine gives you benefits such as work luck, career advancement, and marriage.

Furthermore, in June, one of Japan’s three major festivals, the Sanno Festival, is held. Sanno Festival is a traditional event that has continued since the Tokugawa period, a 300m festival line parades through the center of Tokyo. You can enjoy an experience as if you had traveled back in time to the Edo period.
