This Shrine is located near Ueno and can be accessed on foot - 15 min walk or by Metro - Chiyoda line, get off at Nezu. Lovely koi and spectacular azaleas when in bloom.

Among all flowers, azaleas are my favorite. And the garden at the Nezu Shrine is just so beautiful. I could never get enough of the multi-colored gardens, so I try to drop by twice or thrice a week during my 4-month stay in Hongo. If...More

went there for the azalea festival but it was too early.. Still very peaceful and beautiful. Wasn't too far from the train station and there was some interesting shops along the way.

I went early in the morning and the shrine was nice and peaceful. There were a few worshipers about and some people setting up for what I assume was the Azalea Festival. The grounds are very scenic with a waterfall, turtles and some koi. Afterwards,...More

I went alone on a Monday morning, in cherry blossom season. The azealas were not out yet so the temple grounds were very quiet, and the sakura trees dotted here and there made it very beautiful. The gardens are well-kept and it was lovely to...More

This place is a little off the typical tourist's radar but it's worth checking out especially during their Azalea Festival in spring. The best time to see the flowers would be the 3rd/4th week of April. Admission to the shrine premises is free but there...More

Do go to one or two shrines when visiting Tokyo or Japan in general They are lovely peaceful places to worship. A way to get some insight into Japanese culture and Japanese people. Caring and gentle they are also devout.

This is a nice quiet place close to the Yanaka area and Nezu station on the Chiyoda line. I visited Nezu Shrine in the middle of April when the azaleas in the shrine's garden were starting to have flowers. The Azalea flower festival here is...More

We went on Sunday morning and there was a wedding as well as family photo shoot. If you want to experience walking under torii gates but can't afford to go to Kyoto, you should come here. It's really pretty!

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping

Take the Chiyoda metro line to Nezu station. The shrine is only a couple minutes walk from there--you can see the local map at the station.
