This shrine has a long history but somehow it looks modern and not so authentic. It's OK to visit if you're in the vicinity but don't bother if not.

Busy shrine visited mainly by locals. At the one side of the exit, there is an impressive view of the tori gates.

Beautiful Shrine but I think the best part is out behind the shrine they have a small tori gates tribute and it's pretty amazing but you'll never know it's there unless you look for it.

The stairs leading up to the shrine looked impressive. Fortunately, there was also an escalator. The shrine is pretty. There was some sort of ceremony going on when I was there, which made the visit exciting. Not everybody can expect to be that fortunate, I'm afraid.

We were looking for a trendy Mochi ice cream place, which was closed. :/ Luckily we saw a shrine close by on the map. It was the Hie-Jinja Shrine. As soon as we went up the small hill, it was like we stepped back in time and out of the city all together. The shrine stood majestically and induced a... More

Great photo opportunities. A lot of children and adults wearing kimonos when we went. Beautiful gates in the stairs at the back

The shrine is located right by The Capitol Tokyu hotel. It is a great place to go to early in the morning if you have jet lag to get some fresh air and re-center. Just sit on the stairs and chill- at 6am, no one will bother you.
