麻布氷川神社は、天慶5年(942年)源経基が勅命を受け、天慶の乱(平将門の乱)を平定するために東征した際、境内約2000坪を勧請したのが始まりです。
その後、万治2年(1659年)に今の場所へ移転しました。神木の一本松の松の木は200mほど離れた場所に今もあります。
神社では江戸時代以降も芝居や能が賑やかにとりおこなわれ、江戸氷川七社の一社として、また麻布の総鎮守府として崇敬されてきました。
昭和19年には東京大空襲の戦災に遭遇しましたが、千貫神輿(宮神輿庫)や神楽殿、手水舎は災禍を逃れて今に至っています。ここはまた、アニメ・マンガの『美少女戦士 セーラームーン』にも出てきました。セーラーマーズこと火野レイが巫女をつとめる神社がここです。但し、作品の中では「火川神社」となっています。
