  • Last time I went slow down time so did not visit this time is a revenge of the fallen. Was lined up just a little bit, but has quickly turn around. Hands together silently in the smell of incense and calm to the mind. I wish smeared with self-interest.

  • In "Park" "Inokashira pond ' in Sen wash benzaiten shrine in the island that it is. Sheen vermilion pillars and walls are brilliant, so the fresh green and pond water is fine. At lunchtime on a weekday I visited, but it was crowded with many people including foreign tourists. Good luck with money up Sen bathing, so go prepared pennies.

  • Closes at 5p.m., so it is not an option to visit after work. But worth visiting if you're nearby.
  • If you're in the park, stop by this atmospheric shrine. Bentenzai is originally a Chinese deity of fortune associated with music and water, so her shrines are found near ponds and springs. Nearby is a spring which is the source of the water for the pond and the Kanda River, which runs right through the middle of Tokyo to the bay. The shrine closes at 5, though. Also, an urban legend says that couples who ride the boats in the pond soon break up because the goddess gets jealous!
  • Beautiful location, but kind of challenging to navigate.
  • Pretty; popular photography spot.
  • Amazing sights
