Shinto shrine

This shrine is known for bestowing its blessings on business prosperity, success in work, and fulfillment in love and marriage.

Instead of the typical guardian lion dogs found at Shinto shrines, the grounds here feature Masaru, the statue of a monkey-like creature. Said to give the blessings of good connections, this design is featured on the amulet charms and wish-granting wooden plaques sold here.

There are also subordinate shrines such as Sanno Inari Shrine, Sarutahiko Shrine, and Yasaka Shrine here.
Shaped like a mountain, Hie Shrine's Torii gate is rare. Another highlight of this shrine is one of the only two Torii gate tunnels in all of Tokyo.
