About Kanda Shrine

Initially, we were seated in the area around Shomonzuka in the current Chiyoda-ku Otemachi.

When Ieyasu Tokugawa opened the Shogunate in 1603 and expanded Edo Castle, Kanda Myojin reorganized the site from Edo Castle to the present location where it was in the position of Omote-Kimon, and the shrine was built from the Shogunate.
Since then, throughout the Edo period, the Shogunate has received the reverence of many people, not to mention the Shogunate, as well as the Edo people. About 300,000 worshipers visited on the 3rd day.

Especially on the first day of work on Jan. 4, about 4,000 companies will have prayers for New Year’s worship. In January, the number of prayers for New Year’s worship of approximately 10,000 companies will be included.
