Kawagoe Hikawa Shrine

Kawagoe Hikawa Shrine
Known as the shrine of love, the Kawagoe Hikawa Shrine is said to be around 1,500 years old. Its impressive entrance gate, called a torii, stands at 15 meters tall (around 50 feet). The main shrine is adorned with delicate carvings and has been listed as an important cultural building within the region. It is also a popular place for people to get married, as well as the site of a summer festival featuring tunnels of colorful wind chimes, live music, and even a ‘shrine bar’.

Dedicated to the God of Marriage, there is a good chance of witnessing a wedding procession on your visit to the Kawagoe Hikawa Shrine. The site is surrounded by greenery and is not as crowded with tourists as other famous shrines, meaning if there is no wedding or festival during your visit, it’s a peaceful place to relax and take some photographs.

The shrine also has its very own restaurant; Musubi cafe serves various meals and desserts throughout the day and has a gift shop selling books and other souvenirs to remember your visit. Hikawa Shrine can be visited as part of a Kawagoe Walking Tour, which also takes in other famous attractions in the city.
