  • A simple Buddhist temple in the Shinjuku area. There is often a flea market on Sundays. No entrance unless you are praying.  more »
  • This is a classic Shinto shrine and has a really peaceful atmosphere to it. It is close to a lot of tourist attractions and is easily visible. Beautifully lit up at night.  more »
  • Nothing special, just another shrine, however, during the festival it is bustling with many vendors, energy, crowds and lots of food. Great time to visit then.  more »

  • Small yet unique temple for local to worship. A lot of Japanese visit every morning before leaving to work. How they respect their god and wish of good luck. Such a beautiful spiritual of modern Japanese in religious.
  • I visited this place due to the antique road side market which regularly happen on some fixed dates/days. However, no comment about temple. They are always good and a place of peace.
  • Off the beaten pass in busy Shinjuku area is the shrine. Currently undergoing some landscape remodeling but still an amazing serenity.
  • Our first Temple visiting Japan Tokyo! It was at night time and there not a lot of people. Basically everything was already closed except bars at golden gai.
  • Beautiful srin in the midst of Red LIght bars. Very similar to what you'd see at the Inari Shrine in Kyoto, but, you know, you don't have to go all the way to Kyoto to see it. Stop by here and pay your respects between getting your next drink.
