Hie Jinja (shrine) is one of the major shrines of Tokyo. The shrine is located on a tree covered hilltop between the neighbourhoods of Akasaka and Nagatacho.
As one of Tokyo’s major shrines, it’s also the kick off point for one of its major festivals – the Sanno Matsuri.
Although the shrine itself is a pleasant and serene place to take a break from the surrounding hustle and bustle, the highlight is the shrine’s back entrance with the path lined by 90 bright red torii gates.
