Sacred Tokyo 40 Shinto Shrines


Also known as Hatagaya Hikawa  Jinja. 

Date of origin is unknown but its existence in the mid sixteenth century is attested to by a reference  in a Late Hōjō clan document of the  Eiroku Period (1558-1569). At that time its betto-ji was the nearby Shōgonji Temple, often referred to as the Hatagaya Fudōson.

The shrine was destroyed in the fire bombings of 1945 and rebuilt in 1956.

The komainu date to 1857.
