Inspirock Rating:
3.8/5 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.

  • A great temple dedicated to Admiral Tōgō Heihachirō, winner of the maritime battle against the Russia in 1906 during the Russo-Japanese war (1905-1906). In addition to this temple, there is a small museum dedicated to the Admiral. It is quite large, with a very nice water point. Not easy to find, it is surrounded by the very modern district of Harajuku, which gives an interesting contrast. Little known to tourists, it is very nice to visit.

  • In around 10 minutes is a short walk from Harajuku Station. Entrance of the parking lot as in really here?

  • 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!
  • Peaceful and hidden away from the surrounding 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.
  • Admiral Togo Heihachiro renowned battle of the Japan Sea shrine. In the heart of Shibuya sympathetically with modern buildings, such as the high rise buildings. So is doing such as wedding ceremonies. Katsumori a Z flag every time I come here to buy.
