I was lucky to witness a prayer so there was activity at this shrine. I would not make it a destination unless you plan it for Anime reasons during the weekend or for a festival.

only 2 good reasons why people would go there: 1) It was featured in the anime love live, so if you want to complete your trip you need to visit it 2) it sells plenty of limited edition anime merchandise

On weekends they always organise anime festivals. If you like Japanese anime manga, it’s worth a visit. This place is always crowded with Japanese anime fans on weekends. And they sell lucky charms which have the pictures of Japanese anime characters. If you want to...More

One of the grandest shrines in Tokyo. It was very busy even in winter. Full of school children that like to practise their English with the tourists.

Significant Shinto Shrine from the 6th century and still an active place of worship. The Saturday we visited, a wedding was taking place. You never know what you will see. Many Japanese children (mostly girls) dressed in traditional Japanese kimonos.

Kanda shrine is small but beautiful. You can buy some omamoris to bring good luck to those that play video games or work on their computers! There is a small ice cream shop with lots of flavors, a small fountain and a donkey.

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.
