Hie Shrine, Chiyoda

4.1
#14 of 1,340 in Historic Sites in Tokyo
Find a place of spirituality in the center of the city during a visit to Hie Shrine. 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.

  • Is a Shinto shrine enshrined, Nagata-Cho 2-Chome, Chiyoda-ku. From the age of Ōta dōkan Edo Castle, and so was moved to its current location to 0/1659 (1659). I would like to visit once, you go up the stairs and ramps from the Akasaka-Mitsuke, it is also one of the dozen Tokyo shrine.

  • To the Prime Minister's Office next to the Township's. Later I knew that officially, but was surprised at the escalator entrance at 3 months and climbed the steeper of the two "hills", enter the. The larger the height of formality. Wisteria, cherry trees and that I also felt might be a different landscape.
