Allow yourself some time to wander the gardens and statues etc. The shrine is very peaceful and is right beside Tokyo Tower.

As you seen from the pictures, its a temple near the Tokyo Tower. I am not a huge fan of temples but I stopped by after seeing it. There isnt much but it is a good place for a exterior view of the Tokyo Tower.
