  • I worship at the dozen years Buri. Can anything surprised looked Tokyo sky tree from the ground. But the shrine itself does not change. Monument to zenigata Heiji is behind the shrine as well. If anything has changed, you had of Miyuki-chan?. It is the epitome of "Edo" seems to be where one.

  • 1/4 (Wednesday). Right... I was at work early in the world!. Large matrix with companies in suits with flick came out easily and my I was 5, and let's go to the shrine on this day. HONGO Street was surprised that lined up the Avenue! Was lined up for a while, but took more than two hours seemed so lost in the cold, I retreat. W was a glimpse of corporate Japan

  • And had only a little time, the travel business has been in the Kanda Myojin. Involuntarily drawn into the atmosphere of the oasis in the big city. It seems somehow the heart is washed.

  • 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.
  • Fantastic shrine to visit while you are in Japan! Its got beautiful decoration and a huge staircase you can go run up and down for training, and it's also where you can some Love Live good while your there.
  • This temple has some added character due to its proximity to Akihabara. I picked up a charm to keep evil spirits out of electronics--favorite souvenir of my trip.
  • It was the love live shrine when I went and I got to buy a limited edition tablet with Love Live shrine maidens on it. The artwork on the tablets that were hung up were really awesome. And while we were there on the weekend, we got to see part of a wedding as well. Pretty interesting experience to see such an anime oriented shrine.
  • Beautiful and a quiet shrine. Has a lot of red colour which makes it look lovely compared to the surroundings. Less crowded. You can see the sky tree from here.
