  • The nearest station is Inari-Cho station of the subway. But I think best to pray while walking from JR Ueno Station Asakusa district. It is about 10 minutes walking from Ueno Station. Vermilion is located on Boulevard otorii is a landmark. Pass through the gate and front is a shrine. As the size of the shrine is not too large. It is also like Tillman's is. They say very close to kappabashi, Asakusa shrine is. Office, hotel inquiry as well as amulet.

  • Metro Inari-Cho station, Asakusa is located on big vermilion Torii gate stands out. History known as one of like a shrine, Temple and the old stone Torii. Business and home safely seems a temple. Walking distance from JR Ueno Station hanging out, so is recommended.

  • A small shrine, if you passby just take a deep breath and re-center yourself, but it's not worth "seeing" it's worth praying
  • The shrine is okay, nothing special. But there's a huge red tori (gate) in the street in front of it, which is kinda cool. Anyway, what really makes it a special shrine is the yearly Shitaya Jinja Matsuri - the shrine festival. Smaller than the one in Asakusa just a week later, but also much less crowded and even more old-school.
  • Beautiful shrines (Yes, don't forget the smaller inari shrine to the East, within the same compound)! Also, keep your eyes out for the white goose! Very funny guy.
  • Good place to play.
  • I like to pass around here sometimes.

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.
