The priestess, named in Japanese media as 58-year-old Nagako Tomioka was on the way to the shrine and was attacked when stepping out of her vehicle.
Two women were killed and another person was injured in a stabbing incident at a shrine in Tokyo, with the male suspect appearing to have committed suicide, Japanese authorities said on Friday.
Also, a woman aged in her 30s who was with Shigenaga, attacked and stabbed the driver of the auto with a Japanese sword, police said.
The 58-year-old Nagako was later pronounced dead with a "deep" stab wound to her chest along with a laceration to the back of her neck.
At around 8:35 p.m., police received a distress call about a woman wielding a sword violently on a road near Tomioka Hachimangu Shrine.
After the attack, the pair then moved to an area near the residential compound on the shrine's leafy grounds.

At some point thereafter, Shigenaga fatally stabbed his girlfriend in the chest and abdomen.
