Asakusa-jinja Shrine, or more popularly "Sanja-sama (Shrine of the Three Gods)", was built in 1649 by the third Tokugawa Shogun, Tokugawa Iemitsu, in memory of the three fishermen who established Senso-ji Temple. The shrine pavilions dedicated by the Shogun still remain and its Gongen-zukuri, the classics architectural style of the pavilions can be seen.
Asakusa-jinja Shrine's annual festival "Sanja Matsuri" held in May is one of the most famous traditional festivals in Tokyo. The shrine has three Honja-Mikoshi (portable shrines) known as Ichi-no-miya, Ni-no-miya and San-no-miya, and these Honja-Mikoshi portable shrines are carried around Asakusa during the festival. The festival attracts 1.5 million people every year from both across Japan and abroad, and participants can feel the atmosphere of the old days of the Edo Period (1603 - 1868).
