Okunitama-jinja Shrine is one of Tokyo's oldest and most visited shrines

Okunitama-jinja Shrine is one of Tokyo's oldest shrines with a history of nearly 2,000 years. Located at the center of Fuchu City, it is considered one of the five major shrines of Tokyo along with Meiji Jingu, Yasukuni Jinja Shrine, Hie Jinja, and Mie Shrine.

Okunitama-jinja Shrine is particularly known for its lively Chestnut Festival (Kuri Matsuri) held each fall, which features singing and dancing, hundreds of paper lanterns, a parade of floats and, of course, the area's famous chestnuts. It's also a popular shrine to visit for New Year's hatsumode. About 500,000 people visit each New Year's.
