This is the ideal pick for time-tight travelers wanting to discover lots of Tokyo’s highlights in a day. Avoid the potential confusion of Tokyo’s subway system, and travel comfortably in a private vehicle instead. Enjoy the flexibility of being able to pick a set itinerary, or customize your own. Potential attractions include Sensoji Temple, Shibuya Crossing, Tokyo Skytree building and much more.

You can enjoy some really nice events there, like traditional music, archery, or festivals. It is famous for having war crime convicted people buried there, and the japanese nationalists and extreme right uses it to make china and korea cringe whenever they have a chance. The museum is also interesting, but really tries to minimize the wrong doing of Japan during WW2. Like I said, this temple is linked to the japanese nationalists and extreme right wing. You will also see there some of the famous extreme right black trucks that spill their hate, from time to time.

Just a short walk from the imperial Palace and a stones throw from the Budokan, this is a controversial but interesting place where Japanese folk pay homour to their war dead. I went in late March and the Sakura blossoms had started. the grounds do have an awe about them but my disappointment was I didn't get to visit the War Museum as it was shut down due to the Covid19 virus. I'm still glad I visited. My family fought against Japan in WWII but generations later we can pay homage to all the people that suffered from military conflicts and look to a peaceful coexistence.

I visited the "Yasukuni Jinja" Shinto Shrine in Tokyo in November 2019 when it was marking its 150th Anniversary. It is a lovely place to visit and walk with a pleasant outer garden and the notable landmark 'Daiichi Torii' which is Japan's largest torii (shrine gate). You will also see the Statue of Omura Masujiro who was the founder of the modern Japanese Army. The statue installed in 1893 was Japan's first Western style statue. Once you walk from the Daiichi Torii, through the garden and past the statue you will see, and walk through, the 'Daini Torii' (second shrine gate). To the left is the 'Otemizusha', or the Main Purification Font with 18 ton granite basin. You should rinse your hands and mouth here before paying your respects at the Main Hall ('Haiden'), after walking through the ornate wooden 'Shinmon' (main gate) and the 'Chumon Torii' (third shinto shrine gate). The whole visit to Yasukuni Jinja is a memorable Japanese cultural experience. You will probably see locals dressed in traditional kimono's and everyone is respectful and peaceful... Please be the same. This is also the location of the "Yushukan Museum" which is well worth a visit and it is Free to enter. Here you will see relics of Japanese warfare including many items from W.W.2. such as zero fighter planes and kamikaze boats and subs. See my other review.

Visiting the Yasukuni Shrine and the military museum attached to it has been a memorable experience. It may be a must-do visit for any person interested in the history of Japan and international relations. Emotions and questions happened during/after the visit. An immense privilege to have been able to visit these monuments.
