    We visited here at night, just simply because we had been busy during the day. It gave a different perspective to shrines - so peaceful and quiet right in the middle of a crazy hectic area.  more »

    Yasukuni Street has also a small entrance, front is on Meiji-Dori. It is remain old fashioned views but also tucked away in the heart of Shinjuku, building and food and beverage outlets, a mysterious space. 11-Festival is very lively with nice atmosphere.

    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 !!!!

    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.

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.
