The Hie Jinja was originally constructed as the protectorate diety for the Edo Castle. Monkeys are one of the themes of the shrine; there is a statue of a married pair of monkeys, and the shrine celebrates marital harmony and fertility. The "Mountain King Festival" (San'o- matsuri), held every year in mid june, is one of the three great Edo Festivals.
