Interesting!

Make sure you visit the shops around the Temple, they are worth the visit. Go down the side streets also.

This shrine is located near the famous electric town of Akihabara. It is known for a good fortune in businesses. So, there are a lot of people during the beginning of the year. We went there on 29th December, and we were surprise to see a lot of people queuing up to make prayers. On the left side of the... More

Located only a few blocks away from the main bustling street of Akihabara, it was nice to get a breather from all the people and stores. It's a small little shrine that has it's own little horse and also offerings blessings for cars (?!) and has a special charm (omamori) to protect your technology - laptop, cellphone stickers included) from...

This is a nice temple to go and relax. It is a lot less crowded and commercial than the Asakusa temple but has great snack including the ice cream and allows you to wonder around

Very close to Akihara, a total change. A very well preserved shrine and a temple. Take time to walk there fro Akihabara hustle and relax in a real Taoist ambiance. If you are lucky, on a Saturday you may see a traditional wedding. It's worth it

I visited a bunch of shrines while in Tokyo and this one was by far the coolest one, it's the shrine for Mangaka so the the Ema (the wooden plaques) have drawn manga/anime characters on them. The temple and gate are beautiful too! I recommend it a thousand times more than Meiji Jingo as it is far easier to get... More

For a tech freak, this place is worth a visit, because you might just happen to see people getting their smartphones and tablets getting blessed. It's a beautiful shrine and a pretty area, and there seems to be a lot going on (music shows, photo shootings, etc.). Since it's so close to Ochanomizu station, it's easy to get to.

We went late at night when it was peaceful. There was a beautiful ambience of clam and spirituality. It is slightly out the way and not as easy to find but locals are extremely helpful and one lovely restaurant owner left his shop to take us here. A beautiful calm in an otherwise fast paced city

Plenty of colour and noise, we hired a English speaking guide for the day and this was one of the places she took us

Staying in Ochanomizu / Akihabara / Kanda

Neighborhood Profile
Ochanomizu / Akihabara / Kanda
Ochanomizu boasts its academic foundations starting with Yushima Seido, the birthplace of modern day Japanese education. The area has kept its college town feel with several university campuses. If you head towards Jinbocho, you'll find musical instrument and sports equipment shops, and an area of used bookstores for students and anyone interested in literature and the arts. Akihabara is well-known for its computer and electronic goods stores, and is now hugely popular as the must-visit mecca for people interested in anime and games. Kanda is an office district where you can find loads of reasonably priced izakayas popular with professionals who stop to eat and drink before making their way home.
