Hanazono Shrine is one of the important Shinto Shrines found in Tokyo. It is located in Shinjuku around a 10 minute walk from the east exit of Shinjuku train station. It was first established in the middle of the 17th century, during the early Edo period. Over the hundreds of years there has been various redevelopments to the current buildings found at the site. A number of fires had destroyed the buildings including sever damage and destruction during World War II.
Constructed in the Edo period by the Hanazono family, this Inari shrine—a shrine dedicated to Inari, the androgynous god of fertility and worldly success—is a favorite place for businessmen to pray for successful ventures. On Sundays the open area of the Shrine holds open market selling range of products including antiques.
