  • A small shrine to take a break from museums and zoo. Just to chill out for few minutes. Access to the inner garden is 500yen, but there is noaccess to inner shrine so you can basically skip that visit. Nice place to run away from crowd in the park.
  • Breathtakingly beautiful shrine to see. Built in 1651, this shrine is dedicated to Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate. You can also see "the Flame of Hiroshima and Nagasaki" by the shrine and there are also many copper lanterns as well!
  • Beautiful golden shrine with a great venue.
  • Feel the power of History. never miss it.
  • Small but beautiful Shrine in a park like Ueno!
