Right in the middle of bustling streets, I found myself awestruck at the peaceful silence that engulfed the area. The grounds are fairly small but the chirping crickets and the humble past of the area do comfort a soul longing quietness.

Shady and amazing feeling of peace in such a busy city. Quite extensive grounds compared to some of the other smaller places near by. Surrounded by the sounds of crickets and crows. Perfect.

The interesting thing with this Shrine is the influence of western architecture in some parts of the building were made in the Meiji era, or the feudal times, around the late 18th century.

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
