Nogi Shrine is about five steps away from Nogizaka Station. There is no admission fee to enter and it's a peaceful walk through a well-kept garden and shrine. The orange torii gates are beautiful and there is a public restroom on the grounds. I wouldn't classify this as a must-see, but it is worth seeing if you're in the area.

I wouldn't say it's a must-see, but it's an unusual shrine and there's some good people watching. There's a subway station almost next to it, and Roggongi's museums and shops are within walking distance.

You are welcomed by a row of chalet style huts selling kimono's and other tourist stuff. Then the temple appears with its red lanterns and incense fire. A worthwhile visit.

Depends on whether or not you are interested in this part of Japan's culture but I found it fascinating

After a long flight from Europe and having jet lag I visited this shrine, My first shrine around 5am on a saturday morning. Loved the modern stone Tori gate going up to the shrine. seems quite big but as it was my first visit to a shrine I was quite conscious of walking around like a tourist when I seemed... More

I found the temple interesting, but not worthy all the fuss around it. It's a great place to have some pictures taken because the views are totally different, but to me it wasn't worth the walk.

Was quiet and very calm when I went, there was also a Japanese couple getting ready for their wedding which was kinda cool. You have to stop off and do a walk thru its worth it.

This shrine is literally at exit 1 of Nogizaka station. They have a little antique market 3rd Sunday of each month. If you are lucky like we were you may see a Shinto wedding. A great surprise and then a short 5 minute walk to Roppongi midtown

Quiet place to retire from the amazing Tokyo buzz. It's a must do to understand the amazing facets that the city has to offer.
