THE NEZU SHRINE is said to have been established by the legendary priest "Yamato Takeru no Mikoto". In 1705, the 5th Shogun Tsunayosi Tokugawa built the structures that can be sen today. The 6th shogun Ienobu subsequently offered three mikoshi (portable shrines) to the shrine and created the Tenka Matsuri (reign festival). The festival is still held on 21st September. Because it is one of the oldest original construction remaining in Tokyo, the main hall, two gates and the wall of Nezu Jinja has been designated as an important cultural property.
