Hibiya Shrine in Shinbashi

The hibiya Shrine in Shibashi is a small shrine surrounded by the Shiodome and Shinbashi buildings. Founded in 1606, it was rebuilt and relocated to current location in 2009.

The Shrine surrounded by the Shiodome skyscrapers, present an striking view, with the great contrast of an old style shrine and modern architecture.

If you visit the shiodome area, this shrine is a must to appreciate the mix of old and new, characteristic of Tokyo.
