quote
Tokyo Daijingu is affectionately called 'O-Ise-san in Tokyo' because of its enshrined deities.

the ancestral deity of the Imperial Family and the tutelary deity of all the Japanese, and who is enshrined in the Inner Shrine of the Grand Shrine of Ise.

Three deities of creation and growth: 造化の三神

Yamatohime-no-mikoto 倭比賣命,

History
In the Edo era (1603-1867), the greatest wish of every Japanese was to make a pilgrimage to the Grand Shrine of Ise, where Amaterasu-Sume-Ohkami and other deities were enshrined.

The new era of Modern Japan began with the Meiji Restoration in 1868 and a new shrine was built in Tokyo in 1880 with the approval of Emperor Meiji. This shrine enabled people in Tokyo to worship the deities enshrined in the Grand Shrine of Ise from afar. At first this new shrine was called 'Hibiya Daijingu,' taking the name of the area in which it was located. After the Kanto Earthquake, it was moved to its present site of Iidabashi in 1928, and it was renamed 'Iidabashi Daijingu'.
