The Hie Shrine from Tokyo is dedicated to Oyamakui-no-kami, the god of the Mount Hie from the Shiga prefecture, also known as Hie-no-kami (hence the name of the shrine). This is one of the main Shintō shrines in Tokyo, with a very important thesaurus including a sword by Osafune Nagamitsu that was owned by Emperor Meiji.
But the shrine also owns a different kind of treasure: here you can visit the most beautiful torii path from Tokyo, made from tens of torii gates placed very close to each other. It deserves to be on any Japan to do list.
