Kanda-jinja Shrine, usually called "Kanda Myojin" by local people, was allegedly built in 730.
The ancient shrine was worshiped by the second Tokugawa Shogun Hidetada and successive Shoguns as the guardian of Edo.
It is believed to bring luck in business, family and finding future spouses.
Kanda Festival, one of the biggest festivals in Tokyo, is held here every two years in May.
