  • Buy a rake, an annual every year I went to Tori. And rake every larger each year, buy I don't, so this is hard (laughs)

  • In the middle of the walk passes through the well antique market! It comes to tourists. Enjoyed the quiet space happens to be a good time, like I don't think Shinjuku.

  • Is every winter is so closely in the region, and people are buying rakes, said. So of course often drunk than other regional shrines should be? Every winter is fun

  • Found by accident while I searched for my hotel. Great torii gate as an entrance, nice calming nature in overflowing and very active Shinjuku.
  • Very tranquil.. A shrine that is so simple but inspires peace within ✌️
  • Their Tori no ichi festivals in November are something else. Tons of little stands with food, souvenirs and Shinto paraphernalia. Salesman performing rituals with customers. A cabaret troupe performing magic tricks and comedy. Guaranteed to blow your mind.
  • Small shrine itself is very nice place. But this is in Kabukicho and it is unfortunately the worst place in Tokyo.
  • Nice and peaceful place in the middle of Shinjuku.
