  • This is a place that many people recommend, but I don't think there's anything special about it, and when it arrives, it's almost no one, nothing, about 20 minutes away. It's hidden in the Shinjuku city, it's easy to ignore, but I don't think it will take time.

  • 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 !!!!

  • 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.

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.
