Kyodo news agency reported there was some kind of confrontation between the priestess and her brother, named as Shigenaga Tomioka.
Two women were killed and another person was injured Thursday night in a stabbing incident at a Shinto shrine in Tokyo, with the male suspect appearing to have committed suicide, police said.
Police said that Nagako Tomioka, the 58-year-old head of Tomioka Hachimangu shrine, was attacked as she got out of her auto Thursday night.
At around 8:30 p.m., the police received an emergency call saying there was a person holding an edged weapon and they found a samurai sword and two survival knives near the attack site.
The four were sent to a hospital, where the three were confirmed dead.
The attack began around 8:25 p.m., when Shigenaga Tomioka attacked his sister with a Japanese sword as she exited her vehicle on the shrine grounds. She then slashed him in the right shoulder. The driver's injuries were not life-threatening.
The assailant, identified as 56-year-old Shigenaga Tomioka, attacked his 58-year-old sister sister Nagako Tomioka, the shrine's chief priestess, with a Samurai sword and killed her after she got off from a chauffeur-driven auto.
Shigenaga Tomioka was arrested some 10 years ago for blackmailing his sister.
Founded in 1627, Tomioka Hachimangu Shrine is located about 300 meters from Tokyo Metro's Monzen-Nakacho Station.
