Shigenaga Tomioka had once served as a priest and the siblings had long quarrelled over shrine affairs, according to local media.
A former priest wielding a samurai sword killed his Shinto priestess sister and another woman in an apparent family vendetta at a historic Tokyo shrine, before turning the blade on himself, police told AFP Friday.
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.
Nagako Tomioka's driver, 33, was also seriously injured in the attack.
After slashing the priestess, Shigenaga Tomioka then stabbed the younger woman to death with a sword, before killing himself, police said.
The brother is then believed to have killed the woman before committing suicide.

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.
