Togo Shrine, Shibuya

3.9
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.

  • Just north of the Takeshita Dori to the shrine. If you take a stroll, stumbled. And the Shinto shrine dedicated to the heroes of the Russo-Japanese war, Admiral Togo; Climbing the famous Z flag was found. Garden pond is beautifully and gracefully swam carp. You can feed it seems. When you're tired in the hustle and bustle of the Takeshita Street, resting partly visits, good.

  • Togo shrine, in Harajuku. Is a Shinto shrine enshrined Togo Heihachiro. I think many people said the Harajuku and Meiji-Jingu, but miss Togo shrine here. Slowly enough to enjoy the new year mood, new year's day. I think the place suitable for elderly people.

  • Where ingenuous and free from the hustle and bustle of the city. Well-known as a shrine of the victory in the streets, here's upon the present custodian of the shrine. Was Eve Admiral Togo enshrined was the substantial Schemer would tell the truth, but it's seems to be no. People are very good for that. It seems people like the mirror of the boss. Because it is respected by the gathered elite men will, more than anything else was will cooperate with the United Kingdom. Admiral Togo did say Russia blockaded Malacca Strait thanks to that is, it would be devious and lucky draws, will be supported in the sky, sunny sky! It is.

  • Visiting Tokyo and was doing the tourist thing. I stumbled on this little shrine while exploring the surrounding area. Even though this place was within the city, it was pretty quiet and peaceful.
  • Really nice, another little place is a vast busy 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.
  • 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.
