  • We found this shrine accidentally while walking around the park. As we strolled on the western part of the park, we saw a Shinto wedding and watched the ceremony. There are many local residents using ...  more »
  • In the depths of the Shinjuku Central Park. Go from the Park and passes through the simple Torii, but in front of the splendid Torii was built. So many people went to the observation deck of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government building to stop the foreigners there. Ordinary shrine is for foreign people who feel Japan emotions than anyone might be.

  • Overall it was okay. It was an interesting area to look at but unfortunately I couldn't find any descriptions of the buildings in English. I do not fault the Japanese people for this, after all, it is their shrine and they want to minimize tourism to the area then it's their choice. One thing that was pretty cool is the pamphlets of local things to do (both English and Japanese) that they had at the top of the steps.
  • The shrine is very gorgeous. Many students come here for wishing good grade in school.
  • This is a spiritual place and you can really go in there is so peaceful.

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.
