  • When I went to Ueno was allowed to pray. To smoke the shrine itself is good, but seems to be from nearby office workers in sight at many gatherings, and has smoked 'em was kinda odd (← in the bad sense, of course). Position allowed side would break my but is not known, but now the 21st century, now in public spaces (environment) would prevent any good smoke? Mismanagement, an important temple in the cigarette, cultural heritage, and if you, if you burned also will be gone.

  • I like that aspect of the sculpture Hall, especially hydrangeas. Come in and watch out red Torii may be many foreign tourists. It is regrettable that many people would go out and just take pictures and do not pray to God's blessings for prosperity and safety.

  • 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
  • comfortable place.
  • Lobr this place
  • 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.
