After slashing the priestess, Shigenaga then stabbed the younger woman to death with a sword before killing himself, police said.

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.

Police believe Nagako Tomioka was killed by her brother, while the accomplice attacked Tomioka's driver.

Japanese media reports said he was her younger brother and that the attack was part of a family feud.

Shigenaga Tomioka, 56, and an accomplice were hiding behind her house, police said.

Shigenaga's partner, meanwhile, chased down his sister's driver, who had tried to escape on foot, and attacked him about 100 meters away.

Tomioka Hachimangu found itself in hot water with the Jinja Honcho (Association of Shinto Shrines) in 2010 over the appointment of the shrine's chief priest.

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. The driver's injuries were not life-threatening.

A blood-stained samurai sword and survival knife were retrieved from the scene.

The attacker was the chief priest of the shrine more than a decade ago, but was demoted from the post and succeeded by his sister.

Thursday night's attack at the Tomioka Hachimangu shrine, established in 1627, was captured by nearby security cameras. After he left the post of chief priest in 2001, he sent a threatening postcard to his sister in January 2006 in which he wrote, among other things, that he would send her to hell. It is known as the birthplace of sumo.
