  • This was the first place that we visited on my trip to Japan! It is a place very nice although I think it is very important to have knowledge of the place for me having to be the first day the tour... only take photos because we didn't know the story behind. Cherry trees are very beautiful there only lack pointing to get and also someone who can explain how they greet (ritual) in the temple.

  • 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.
  • Small peaceful shrine. Mosquitoes were there though (September '16).
  • Very quiet location to enjoy some of the cultural aspects of the Japanese shrines without the crowds, right in the middle of Shinjuku/Toyko.
  • We visited on a Sunday, and the small park around the shrine was packed with people celebrating, eating and drinking. It was a fabulous place to spend a Sunday afternoon.
  • The shrine is hidden between buildings. Partially was on restoration.
