  • Hanazono shrine in the middle of Tokyo. Only 10 minutes from Shinjuku Station. And is more beautiful when the cherry blossoms are in bloom. Is the place you want to go in the time of cherry blossoms.

  • One thousand Tokyo contrasts give this corner of typicality in crowded Shinjuku district; at the entrance to a huge door Tori, an alley of trees and finally the Hanazono Shrine on top of the steps. Advise the nocturnal visit to enjoy the calm that reigns in these places and the color mix recreated by streetlights just lit and the sunset. We recommend a quick visit

  • The best season of this shrine is spring (Sakura-cherry blossoms season) Sakura drops are so beautiful and so romantic. Also I strongly recommend you to visit a festival of this shrine called "Torino ichi" . It's so powerful and makes you happy !!!!

Also I love the festival of this shrine called "Torino ichi" . It's so powerful and exciting! I strongly recommend you to visit !!!
  • 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.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. 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. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
