During around seventeenth century, it is said that Tsukiji area was close to sea. It was reclaimed after Meiji era, but was difficult because of waves. After Namiyoke Shrine was built, reclaimed construction was completed. Since then the shrine was enshrined Namiyoke(protection from waves).

It's located right next to the busy fish market so once you've finished walking around the market and tasting all the different types of food there is to offer drop by the shrine to relax.

As others said, maybe not worth a trip if you're far away, but if you're around Tsukiji Fish Market, it's a good place to stop at and get a hint of the areas old history - I believe this shrine is from the Edo period

Nice little shrine at the end of the fish market. Worth the stop to drop a few coins and pay respects. If you a visiting the area it's worth the 10 min stop

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
