  • So once in a while a company near or on new year's day! I like to go because I do not know whether or not there is blessing, but from a company near.

  • 在繁華喧囂的新宿市區裡,竟然有這麼一個靜謐的角落,閃進鳥居內,延著石階路而進,就可得到片刻的寧靜,蒼鬱的大樹林木,稀疏的人影,愈是晚愈是寧靜,清風徐徐、夜色迷人。  more »

  • 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.
