  • Visit the winter morning. Trader has busily in the cleaning of the Festival also is funny in the face of it also is hard to come back. It seems I also paid daimyojin homesteaders, provoking a return.

  • Beautiful sight we wondered into while exploring the city. Don't think we saw anyone the entire time we were walking around taking picture here which makes it that much better.

  • 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.
