Koenji Hikawa Shrine

Koenji Area Guide Koenji Hikawa Shrine

Koenji Hikawa Shrine is a shrine located in the south of Koenji. This old shrine is a village shrine, which is one of the guardians of Koenji along with “Koenji Tenso Shrine”. The official name of this shrine is “Hikawa Shrine”, but to distinguish it from the others, it is known as “Koenji Hikawa Shrine”.

Although the Koenji Hikawa shrine building was burned down during World War Ⅱ, the current Koenji Hikawa shrine building was finally reconstructed in 1974.

The shrine is home to Japan’s only “weather shrine”. People come to pray for good weather for important days here. In the past, children used to play a game to predict the weather by throwing geta. If it landed upright, the weather would be good, but if it landed upside down, it meant bad weather. To go along with this, this shrine has a unique geta-shaped ema.
