Time Out says

This quiet little shrine marks the spot where the aristocratic Shibuya family, believed to have given the area its name, once lived. The shrine is designated as a tangible cultural property by Shibuya ward and is also home to a number of treasures including a pair of lion masks carved by craftsman Hidari Jingoro and a mikoshi (portable shrine), which is used during festivals. The shrine also boasts an old sakura tree known as a konnoh-zakura, which is a rare variety of cherry blossom that blooms single and double flowers.
