5 minutes walk from Akihabara. You can see typical Shinto Shrine here. If you are interested in that, this place can be a good convenient choice for your brief visit during your busy trip agenda. It's worth squeezing time for a visit. The appearance and...More

This is a must visit in Tokyo, walking down the street to the temple you may be disappointed as nothing seems to show what hides behind the corner. Beautiful temple and many times you can see a real Japanese wedding being held there.

It was very busy as there is an approach of many street stalls. There was many places to try different foods. The Shrine itself was busy too. It was difficult to take a photograph without other people in.

A must see, the area is really interesting and immaculately kept. No charge for going in either. Great to find out about the traditions. Even the small shop was inexpensive.

Beautiful shinto shrine that gives you a nice relaxing break from the noise and buss of the streets around the shrine. Very beautiful and worth the rather short walk up from the Electronic city

The shrine is beautiful, but I was slightly disappointed. I was hoping to see hand drawn ema, but all were mass-produced and sold on site. However, it is a much smaller shrine where you can observe Shinto practices in a more intimate setting.

This is a must-see when in Tokyo, although it is quite crowded. Spend some time wandering around the shrine as well, as there are many beautiful statues and gardens.

In addition to a typical Japanese Shrine (Jinza) to bring you a peace of mind, this area is famous because of the Japanese Anime LoveLive! back in 2014 - 2016. The Shrine is not a big one and nothing too special if you are not...More

Ochanomizu / Akihabara / Kanda
Ochanomizu boasts its academic foundations starting
with Yushima Seido, the birthplace of modern day

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
