    Akagi shrine, Kengo Kuma's work is the modern shrine. That, according to acquaintances on is the apartment. Shrine to condominiums!! ︎ I was surprised. It may be better to live in a quiet place, so. Akagi shrine run Cafe, friends and relaxing tea. What was in the morning, only three customers.

    I asked after lunch on weekdays. Here is new? It is beautiful. Find something new sometimes visited, every time different and other shrines, fresh feeling. This is a wooden plaque (had up to now? ) And different impressions of what was so interesting. You want to come again.

    Interesting example of the modernisation of a shinto shrine. Famous architect, café attractive ladies who can do some "charm" shopping as well. You like it or not depending on the point of view, but the architecture is worth a look.

    A small, but beautiful shrine. The architecture is more modern than most shrine because it's designed by Kengo Kuma, a prominent Japanese architect. The site also includes a café and charm shop, which sells good luck charming that is also cuter than most shrines. To maximize your visit, download DiG Japan, the official app of Japan tourism. On various spots in Akagi Shrine, there are QR codes. Scan these using the DiG Japan app for more info, like a digital tour guide. You can also find here a introductory greeting from the chief priest of Akagi Shrine. 3

    Small but nice shrine. The area is usually very quiet, and the shrine is extremely clean. Note that it's a recent building made of concrete and glass. From the terrace on the side, you can see the sunset.

    Modern style shrine. Synchronized with building and cafe.

Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi.
