Travel Guide - Okunitama-jinja Shrine

InformationInformation

Okunitama-jinja Shrine is one of the oldest shrines in Tokyo. The shrine is said to have been established in 111 by a governor of Musashi Province (today's Tokyo, Saitama and Kanagawa) to integrate the six shines in the province at that time. It enshrines the Grand God of Okunitama, the guardian of Japan. The shrine was particularly worshipped by the Tokugawa Shogunate and most of the current buildings in the shrine's precincts including the Honden main hall were built in the Edo Period (1603 - 1868).
The shrine is also popular as a spot for the Kurayami-matsuri Festival held from May 3 to 6. The festival attracts 700,000 people every year.
