- quote
Japanese Shinto shrine in Akasaka, Tokyo, Japan. In Tokyo, it is the best known of the 59 branch shrines of the Hikawa jinja, which was designated as the chief Shinto shrine (ichinomiya) for the former Musashi province.



The shrine structures were constructed in 1730 under the patronage of Tokugawa Yoshimune. This became Yoshimune's personal shrine.

- quote -
When the spirits of mountains and forests roam the streets of Tokyo
(2016) At this year’s Hikawa Matsuri in Tokyo’s Akasaka district I got to see three different dashi – traditional wheeled floats – being pulled through the streets. Accompanying them were elders of shrine wearing flat circular hats, as well as an impressive Tengu draped in orange. Tengu are a type of legendary creature found in Japanese folklore. Buddhism long held that the tengu were disruptive demons and harbingers of war. Their image gradually softened, however, into one of protective, if still dangerous, spirits of the mountains and forests.
