Address Akasaka Hikawa Shrine 6-chōme-10-12 Akasaka, Minato City, Tokyo 107-0052, Japan

The most famous of the 59 shrines and the main Shinto shrine, the buildings of Akasaka Hikawa Shrine were built in 1730 by Tokugawa Yoshimune to become his personal place of worship.

Several doors around the shrine, symbolized by two stone columns supporting two carved stone blocks, allow access to the different spaces.

In front of the main hall, several ropes hang in front of the offering box. When you pray in these places, it is advisable to pull the ropes to ring the bells attached to them. This is to attract the attention of the spirits present at the shrine.

The place also has a small landscaped garden, a real oasis of peace and quiet in the middle of the bustling megalopolis.
