Established in 1705, Nezu Shrine is one of the oldest Shinto shrines in Tokyo. Nezu Shrine is famed for its spring azalea festival and its rows of red torii gates, much like the ones in Fushimi Inari in Kyoto. The shrine is one of the few shrines where its original structure remains to this day, escaping destruction from fires and wars of the past. Nezu Shrine's historical significance is well-recognised, being deemed as an Important Cultural Property by the city.
From April to early May, Nezu Shrine holds its annual Azalea Festival. On regular days, the shrine grounds are quiet and peaceful despite its proximity to popular Ueno Park.
Nezu Shrine was said to be founded by Prince Yamato Takeru during the 1st century. The shrine deity worshipped here is Susanoo-no-Mikoto, the god of the sea and storms. It was originally located north of its current site and was moved by Tokugawa Tsunayoshi in 1705.
