  • The shrine was built to guard Shuzen-ji Temple therefore it's very close by but with a different entrance. It's relatively small but you will be able to find a pair of giant oak trees which is 800+ yr...  more »
  • Another shrine in Shuzenji, very close to the main shrine Shuzenji Shrine. You can visit it and you can pass, it's nothing special, especially if you've seen many other temples in Japan.  more »

  • When you step into this shrine, it is like you aren't even in Tokyo anymore. We had 11 days in Japan but we were on an extremely tight budget so we were unable to travel throughout the country as we wish we could have. It has always been my dream to see the Orange Gates in Kyoto. I was happy when I found this place after a lot of researching. It is quite a climb to get in, but it doesn't disappoint. This is a little hidden gem, I think!
  • A nice place to go while in the area. While getting calligraphy done for my book, the staff were super nice and gave me a present!
  • Worth checking out. Historically important and super interesting as several escalators take you up the hill and the shrine is surrounded in large buildings. Recommend during sakura / cherry blossom season. Can take the buggy up the escalator, but must go down a kind of steep hill to get back down. I wouldn't say it's wheelchair accessible.. maybe if you hired a cab. Good to read up on shrine manners before going. A beautiful serene place that's been around for a while.
  • A very Tokyo shrine in the sense that it's located within buildings but it's super peaceful and serene. The only days in which it's really crowded are the first few days of January...
  • I was lucky enough to see a traditional wedding ceremony when I visited. Truly a blessed site with great views
