This beautiful Shrine is directly behind the Hotel we stayed at and is easily accessed. A lovely feeling upon entering, very warm and calming.

We visited when a festival was on and there were endless food stalls selling all manner of delicious food. Display of lanterns makes this a great place to be at night.

Shrines in Tokyo are like little gems to sit and getaway from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo. Places of solace and reflection.

A nice & peaceful Shinto shrine in the middle of busy Shinjuku. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

This is a small shrine, which hosts an even smaller flea market on some Sunday mornings. If you have never seen a Japanese shrine before, then it may be of interest, but compared to (say) the Ikegami Honmomnji Temple complex at the South end of the Toei line, it's not really worth the visit.

This is a great Shinto shrine in eastern Shinkuju. It makes a great place to rest and take a break from the crowds and noise. Be warned however that it's location is misplaced on Lonely Planet maps which has it mixed up with yet another Shinto shrine a couple blocks away. Although the shrine they show is nice, the real...

At the eastern edge of the rowdy Kabuki-cho neighbourhood this tranquil place of worship. Entry is free. A nice stop and worth the walk.
