Hanazono Jinja Shrine Tours

Tokyo’s Hanazono Jinja Shrine is famous for its open-air antique market that is held on Sundays throughout the year. Antique markets have been held on shrine grounds for centuries. Hanazono’s market is famous for its deals on traditional kimonos, used books, art prints, and hanging scroll art, along with various antiques. In addition to the antiques market, the shrine is famous for two annual festivals. Tori-no-Ichi festival is held every November and is known for its varied and extensive comedy performances. The Bon Orodri Festival is held every August and allows guests to participate in traditional Bon dancing. 

Established in the mid-17th century, Hanazono Jinja Shrine is one of Tokyo’s most historic and important Shinto shrines. Over the last several hundred years it has been damaged extensively in multiple fires, the worst of which occurred during World War II. To repair the damage, it has undergone multiple renovations and rebuilds. Crowds flock to Hanazono to step through the red tori gate, offer prayers to the deities for protection of the Shinjuku district, and to meet up with friends and family members to relax and enjoy a peaceful afternoon.
