Kawase-jinja Shrine is a Shinto shrine located in Hikone City, Shiga Prefecture.

This shrine is registered as Kawaketa-jinja Shrine in Kanzaki County, Omi Province on "Engishiki Shinmyo Cho" (list of shrines under the Engishiki [codes and procedures on national rites and prayers]). Referred to as Kawaketa-jinja Shrine until the Edo period, the shrine has been renamed Kawase-jinja Shrine since the Meiji period. The shrine of Kamo-wake-ikazuchi-jinja Shrine in Kyoto City, Kyoto Prefecture, was ceremonially transferred to Hikone City in 1864 to be the Honden (main shrine) of Kawase-jinja Shrine. This shrine has been widely believed as the god of business since long ago.
