Nice Shrine and was a simple walk from my hotel in Akihabara! Worth a visit. I went in the evening and it was quiet and peaceful. You can buy some Omamori from here it will make a great Souvenir.

The shrine was nice and quiet and well-manicured. I love the little statues of the dogs guarding the shrine. This was opened very early in the morning at dawn.

Hidden away, this shrine was a very pleasant stop on a walk around the area. Not very far from Akihabara it is close to another few larger temples and shrines and could easily be missed.

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
