  • This is the shrine became the origin of the Ginza line inaricho station is normally walk from Ueno Station. Vaudeville birthplace of storyteller. New season is much Asakusa so is not crowded in the small. Setsubun is the sweet rolls? In the crowded again. Locked in the evening and not praying.

  • Under our subservience, 1,000 years of history, God of prosperity and safety. Many tourists from foreign countries and are gaining in popularity simply in the downtown tourist spot. BAR overlooking the nearby shrine, delicious French, was a pleasant tourist destination.

  • Under our subservience, and prayed after the shop in okachimachi. Entrance is dawn and the impression within the bathroom. On the grounds there was Takashi Sakae Inari Shrine. New, clean history as Inari Shrine in Tokyo is very old. Ducks live under our subservience, gar-Chan is not found. While foreigners had come to the shrine called the "gar-Chan" was looking for. It seems quite famous ducks.

  • 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.
