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.

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.

Right in the middle of bustling streets, I found myself awestruck at the peaceful silence that engulfed the area. The grounds are fairly small but the chirping crickets and the humble past of the area do comfort a soul longing quietness.

Don't know too much about the history here but the shrine seemed historic and prestine. Compared to other srines in Tokyo, it's small but because of its size, there weren't many people and I could enjoy it peacefully.
