Tōgō Shrine, Shibuya

3.9
#41 of 525 in Historic Sites in Tokyo
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.

    Togo Heihachiro life's "Togo shrine" (flattening of boys went to the word of God and) is. Shrine enshrines the Togo Heihachiro, so its name is Tōgō shrine. This is the Satsuma feudal soldier. Defeated the fleet of Russia took pride in the Russo-Japanese war, at the time world's strongest military power.

    It is interesting to visit this attractive Temple nestled between modern buildings. I liked especially the rear Lake with its bridge type Japanese Park.

    Is totally different from Harajuku chaotic and lively atmosphere where close enough, peaceful space. Weekdays Miboro dam was also there, could slow less than people. So winning about not winning God now hope emotionally and to pray.

    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.

    Nice little shrine in a very busy and crowded area of Tokyo. Flee here if you need a break from the crowds!

    Quite hidden shrine in Harajuku. A nice and quite place to rest if the Takeshita street is too loud for you.

    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.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
