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

The shrine is not a tourist attraction is a place of real worship. The whole place is kept in prestine condition. On my visit lots of people showed up in traditional japanese kimona. People were very friendly and tried to show and explain their culture to me.

If you intend to visit Kanda Myojin you had better get there early as it gets incredibly busy we couldnt believe how busy it got. It becomes crazy and hard to see anything with the amount of people so get there by 9am for the best views

Beautiful. Best advice, pick your top choice of places to visit on a particular day and get there very early. You can move about without crowds and its quiet and lovely

神田は典型的な下町、神田明神は典型的な庶民の神社。良い神社が良い場所にあり、ささやかなお願いをするのにもっとも適した神社では? Kanda is typical downtown of Tokyo, Kanda-Myojin Shrine is typical Japanese Shrine for downtown people. Probably most suitable shrine who just wish small happiness.

This shrine has one of the longest history in Tokyo. I heard it's more than thousand years. We can see traditional red constructions with modern back ground including Tokyo Sky Tree. I believe you can take nice pictures with in this situation.

We stumbled upon this shrine while exploring Akihabara. It was very serene and peaceful unlike the hustle and bustle of Akihabara which is just a short walk away. The steep stairway down the east side of the shrine was also a treat.
