We had the most wonderful, private, market experience here one evening hosted by Relais & Chateaux. The temple is beautiful and the grounds fabulous. The entire area was closed off for our function so we did view it very differently to how others might but well worth the visit to make your blessings for your business prosperity at the temple...

This shrine is one of the oldest in Japan and merits a visit at the least. Quite organised and does not charge anything for entry. Always maintain the Japanese protocols while visiting their shrines to ensure one respects their traditions. There is a small market around it as well for the ones looking for curios. Conveniently located next to a... More

This temple was very interesting to walk through. But what was fascinating were the Japanese teenagers that dress up to go to this temple. It also was at the end of a rather touristy, but still very interesting street, where you can taste all sort of Japanese delicacies, as well as traditional Japanese food (quite pricey, but then Tokyo is...

Very restful and quiet place after a long day exploring Akihabara (I visited at 5 pm). If you are coming from Akihabara, you may encounter a steep set of stone stairs leading up to the temple. The effort to climb is well worth it as you take the first glimpse of the temple ground. If you are coming from Ochanomizu... More

As you can guess from the title of this review I am quite confused about this place. It is about a 10 - 15 minutes walk away from the Akihabara station. Everybody who has been at the station knows that you have lots of shops offering the latest technical toys and plenty of pop culture. How would you imagine a... More

Neighborhood Profile
Ochanomizu / Akihabara / Kanda
Ochanomizu boasts its academic foundations starting with Yushima Seido, the birthplace of modern day Japanese education. The area has kept its college town feel with several university campuses. If you head towards Jinbocho, you'll find musical instrument and sports equipment shops, and an area of used bookstores for students and anyone interested in literature and the arts. Akihabara is well-known for its computer and electronic goods stores, and is now hugely popular as the must-visit mecca for people interested in anime and games. Kanda is an office district where you can find loads of reasonably priced izakayas popular with professionals who stop to eat and drink before making their way home.
