Don't know too much about the history here but the shrine seemed historic and prestine. Compared to other srines in Tokyo, it's small but because of its size, there weren't many people and I could enjoy it peacefully.

General Nogi is a national hero lead Japan for victory at Japan-Russo war. Very quiet even in the center of Tokyo. You can conduct your wedding ceremony if you are Shinto-ist.

The Nogi Shrine is located just about 5 minutes walk from the Nogizaka Metro stop off the Chiyoda (green). It is a nice little shrine nestled in this mixture of residential and business-type area with a small little park next to it. The steps with red "togi" gates is a fun spot for photography and the greater shrine is very... More

Nogi Shrine is very peaceful. It does not take long to visit, but it is well-maintained and very quiet and relaxing. I liked seeing the horse stables and walking through the gardens. I wish the interior of the house was open to the public, I would be curious to see what it looks like. General Nogi was such an important... More

A small shrine, only really worth visiting if you are a General Nogi scholar, or in the Roppongi area, but has a lovely brick wall, so rare in Tokyo nowadays.

This shrine ended up being so nice and peaceful after many were so touristy and crowded. Nice gardens to sit and relax. Right next to Nogizaki Station, so easy access.

General Nogi was head of Japan's armies under the Meiji Emperor. He was famous for his austere lifestyle and lack of luxuries and grandeur. His house is preserved in the gardens just about the shrine to the south and you can go round it on a walkway and look in. Gen Nogi led the Japanese attacks on China in 1898... More

Nogi shrine is away from the usual tourist routes, which is strange as its so close to Roppongi. However this made the atmosphere lovely and peaceful. At the time of my visit, there was me and a small wedding party who were having their official pictures in the grounds, which was beautiful to watch. To get to the shrine you... More
