  • Amesome, peaceful shrine. Was very quiet not a lot of people. My son picked up his first goshuin-cho there.
  • What a great little temple within walking distance of Akihabara. Famous in Tokyo for blessings provided to businesses/companies for a prosperous year. Naturally being so close to "Electric Town", there are a few good luck trinkets that are very IT specific and I have never seen in any other temple I have visited. Definitely worth the 7000 yen to get a blessing from inside the temple, an experience I will never forget. If you do it though, it is a little hard to understand because of the way everything is sung - try to listen out for your name. Very crowded around new year, expect at least a one hour wait to get in.
  • Peaceful shrine. You see people walking by and spending a few seconds bending to pray. Very close to akihabara. Worth visiting.
  • This shrine is very famous but many tourists miss is. You should visit if you go to Akihabara. The shrine is very old and very beautiful and serene.
  • I love these types of places because of the artwork and the background behind it. When I went it was partly under construction, but it's still amazing :)
