Hie Shrine, is located in Nagata-cho, Chiyoda-ku, in the center of Tokyo and sits just west of the National Diet Building.

The shrine is especially popular among girls because Rika-chan is a shrine maiden during the Shichi-Go-San (Seven-Five-Three-Three Festival).

The shrine enshrines Ohoyamakuhi no Kami, the deity of Oyama Kakui. The shrine’s divine virtues include the growth and development of all things, protection of industry in general, protection from bad luck, safe delivery, matchmaking, prosperous business, prosperity of the company, and fulfillment of various wishes.

During the Hatsumode (New Year’s visit), a Shinto performance is dedicated at the Wakamizu Festival and the New Year’s Day Festival is held, attracting many worshippers.

Visitors to the shrine are offered a free-flowing sake. From the nearest station, Tameike-Sanno Subway Station is about a 3-minute walk away. From the Kokkai-gijidomae subway station, it is a 5-minute walk.

There are about 100 parking spaces available, but it gets very crowded during Hatsumode (New Year’s holidays), and since it is close to the station, we recommend using public transportation.
