  • Visited in August 2015. Sanctuary lost in a sea of concrete. No green, no charm. A few toriis... Same Tokyo is much better in terms of shrines.

  • Their Tori no ichi festivals in November are something else. Tons of little stands with food, souvenirs and Shinto paraphernalia. Salesman performing rituals with customers. A cabaret troupe performing magic tricks and comedy. Guaranteed to blow your mind.
  • Really nice on a Saturday night. Lots of food and people.
  • 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.
  • 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 !!!!
