Tōgō Shrine, Shibuya

(130+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
You will be surprised at tranquility of Tōgō Shrine, a small Shinto place of worship with a carp and turtle pond in the midst of the busy Shibuya area. You can go right down the edge of the water and feed the animals, or cut through the pond across a wooden boardwalk. Built in 1940, the shrine was dedicated to Admiral Heihachiro Togo, the founder of the modern Japanese fleet that defeated the Russian fleet in the 1905 Russo-Japanese war. The shrine features a collection of photos and Togo’s writings, but unfortunately no English translations. Make Tōgō Shrine part of your personalized Tokyo itinerary using our Tokyo vacation route planner.

  • The shrine is an ideal place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the jam-packed Takeshita Street. The adjacent garden is especially nice after dark.  more »
  • Enter aside for a moment the Harajuku Takeshita Street was crowded with young people and foreign tourists, and the hustle and bustle of the street lies in a peaceful shrine. The rivalry seems blessings because enshrines Togo field marshal who led the Russo-Japanese war. Togo Memorial next to the cherry blossoms are at their best, and healed.

  • Is to avoid the busy time at work toward the Meiji-Dori from Harajuku Station, Takeshita Street, always go through here. Togo shrine enters Marion crepes turn to the left and climb up the stairs on the right hand side. In the leafy shrine makes you forget the hustle and bustle of the city.

  • For somewhere so close to one of the biggest tourist spots of consumerism and youth culture this place is a quiet breath of fresh air. If you're anything like me, the fun shop hopping of harajuku wears thin after a bit. This place is a lifesaver. Every time I visit I duck over to take a breather. Not remotely the level of meiji jingu, but I truly believe that's part of their understated charm.
  • Quite hidden shrine in Harajuku. A nice and quite place to rest if the Takeshita street is too loud for you.
  • Nice little shrine in a very busy and crowded area of Tokyo. Flee here if you need a break from the crowds!
  • Not extraordinary but nice shrine, especially considering its location in the middle of the most commercial area (in the world?). Classic Japanese design with red torii gates.
  • Peaceful and hidden away from the surrounding crowds.
