Stumbled upon this place when walking to Shinjuku station. A lovely place to reflect away from the hustle and bustle of the Tokyo metropolis. Also some very nice street food to try (the stalls had only just finished setting up) when I visited.

If you are in Japan around the Tori no Ichi festivals (every 12 days in November-usually twice but sometimes three times depending on the way the weeks sit), make sure you visit this shrine. The street is lined with street food stalls and the shrine site itself is packed with food and souvenir stalls. Buy a rake for luck!

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...

It was very cool that it's accessible 24 hrs, and how it was located very close to the Golden Gai area, and surrounded by tall buildings. We went there after dark so we couldn't get good picture, but certainly gave off a surreal atmosphere.
