Sacred Tokyo 40 Shinto Shrines

This is one of the 150 or so Hikawa Jinja in Saitama-ken, ten of which are in Kawaguchi-shi. It was founded in the early years of the Muromachi Period, sometime during the Ōei era (1394-1428), and is one of the oldest shrines in Musashi Province. Various buildings in the shrine have been rebuilt on numerous occasions and following the enactment of the Shrime Merger Order in 1906 a total of 17 local shrines were  merged into Chinjyu Hikawa Jinja in 1907. Some of these shrines till stand in the ground of yje main shrine. Of the 17, 9 were Inari,. In 1884 (Meiji 17) the Main and Prayer Halls were reconstructed. During the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 the Prayer Hall and main torii were destroyed and a new torii and other buildings were erected in 1927 to commemorate the accession of the Showa Emperor two years earlier..In 1986 extensive restorations were funded by parishioner groups.
