  • No gravel or stone-paved cement concrete pavement is the traditional Torii Gates line and to approach the strange atmosphere was appeared from the stilt buildings looks left from the shrine of contemporary architecture. Chigi should be indispensable in traditional shrines and 鰹木 are not simple, linear design is certainly a 21st century. In the glass-walled sanctuary or wish. Even if it says there is a sense of sophisticated design and such. Very interesting draw a line with a traditional Shinto shrine, the shrine is there. Seemed to be run by Akagi shrine here, look like a posh building is located within the wedding halls and restaurants. Interesting place to visit while evaluation is so divided.

  • This time in jade Taichi Fuzhou's event for the first time, visiting the Akagi shrine. Have a good capacity of 150 didn't nokyo-sho so late at night, in the basement of the main building here by sitting high in space. To listen to a good size exactly as is recommended.

  • The architecture is a big draw. When they were rebuilding a few years ago they made a daring choice to go with modern architecture so very different to most shrines. The stark contrast of glass and concrete is impressive. The shrine grounds are tranquil, but I personally find earthen shrines and temples more spiritual. Akagi shrine is lacking in this regard in my opinion. Beautiful torii. Good location. Free to admire. Surrounding neighbourhood very charming with lots of quaint coffee shops and confectioners.
  • This Shinto shrine itself is small but the architecture of the shrine is something to see. Was designed by Kengo Kuma who designed the new Olympic stadium. The structure is stark and simple, reminiscent of Japanese sukiya style buildings( traditional tea house) but modern with stainless steel and glasses. The stark, tutonic, minimalist style is curiously fitting to the shrine. Or points out the similarities of traditional shrine architecture and modern Bauhaus style. Good example of what modern Japan is. Good place to visit alone or with small group and ponder upon Zen gardens and Apple phone designs.
  • Nice place to read and eat there good food
  • Kagurazaka area, nice walk around. This shrine was rebuilded just a few years ago. Lightly sunny place with old tree and interesting omomori things, omikuji. Take your book (goshuin) with you. Calligraphy is available too. Cafe inside the yard.
  • Keep calm and walk into Akagi shrine is good to visit in Kagurazaka district.
