Tōgō Shrine, Shibuya

(3.9/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Short history, but they feel the style and panache. Admiral Heihachiro Togo, of course, the victory in the battle of the Japan Sea shrine is a symbol of victory. It is hope you enjoy throwing away such a profane worldly desires and honestly this emotional atmosphere.

  • It is located a short walk from Harajuku Station on the Togo Memorial next to the shrine. Takeshita Street was very quiet and solemn atmosphere in the eyes and nose. Tōgō shrine was a relative's wedding, wedding banquet and be Togo Memorial Gardens lining up and then go to the shrine, was held the ceremony of the solemn Shinto ceremony. Was a good ceremony solemn.

  • This is the first time you visit shrines here may have been in the Harajuku. Harajuku Takeshita Street hustle and the world was good. Temple would have been quite many.

  • 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.
