Togo Shrine, Shibuya
(3.9/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Togo Shrine part of your personalized Tokyo itinerary using our Tokyo vacation route planner.

  • This shrine is located at the intersection of Takeshita Street and Meiji Avenue. It is a nice walk through if you are coming from Meiji Park or headed towards Times Square in Shinjuku. It memorialises...  more »
  • Just 5 minutes walk away from Meji Jingu, this is a more local shrine. Has a small pond/lake walking up to it. 
  • Is a Shinto shrine that enshrines the Togo Heihachiro. What is this silence and get behind one of Meiji-Dori Avenue and was amazed. Almost no person was from, slowly we pray. A lot of words, such as strong game shrine, so in votive wants to win in the game were written. If when have gold fortune, luck so I was happy.

  • 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.
