Togo Shrine, Shibuya

#42 of 1,340 in Historic Sites in Tokyo
You will be surprised at tranquility of Togo 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.

  • Takeshita Street just behind the scenes, but wrapped in a curiously silent. You are surrounded by buildings felt that moment. Closing in the evening.

  • As the name, Togo Heihachiro shrine. Takeshita Street was a walk in great crowds, but walk from Takeshita Dori Togo shrine, located just a short distance and so the fewer people, spread out a quiet space. And turtle and Koi swimming in a small pond, surrounded with green. It was time for a moment was healed.

  • A short distance from Harajuku Station there are stairs leading to this shrine founded by Admiral Togo, the Commander who defeated the Russian fleet. Very quiet and relaxing with its garden and pond.

  • Nothing too special here as a tourist location. I am sure it has more significance for the locals.
  • A visit only if you are in the area.
  • Shrine! Attended a friend's wedding! Feel Shinto ceremony in a solemn tone, the perfect witness, bless them! Short walk from Harajuku neighborhood? The place become lost. Enter the facility and the staff excellent. And of course attend receptions and meals. Very good, but sometimes it looks good, but not good at leaving. This is different! Good location! Weather, too, was a fun wedding. I'm excited guests and their families to look at is good.

  • That can be reached from the Takeshita Street, Harajuku. Not much farther we recommend other routes.

  • The shrine enshrines the Admiral Togo. Despite the hustle and bustle in the Harajuku and silence. Now Japan is also thanks to Admiral Togo. Want to worship with a feeling of reverence and gratitude.
