The area
Address
Neighborhood: Shinjuku
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.

Lovely shrine in the middle of shinjuku
Mar 2020
Beautiful and peaceful shrine in the middle of Shinjuku Tokyo where it can get very hectic and busy. Great place to meditate and reflect.

A beautiful Shrine with a flea market
Oct 2019
Hanazono Jinja is a lovely Shrine so close to sShinjuku station, but once you are inside you could be in a different time. Quiet lovely to look around the temple area, and on Sundays they host a Flea market with lots of antiques and other curios, I have picked up some great things there.

Small temple in Shinjuku
Oct 2019
A small temple in the middle of Shinjuku, very odd to have such a temple there. Not much to see and it's small, can't compare to the Senso-ji

A piece of quiet amidst the hustle and bustle
Mar 2020 • Couples
We stumbled across this quiet temple by accident. Tokyo is full of little alleys and laneways so we were just exploring them. We were there about 11am and it was almost empty which made it even more tranquil.

Quaint Little Shrine
Dec 2019 • Family
Though I was not out there looking for this shrine, it was a pretty interesting find while on my way to Shinjuku Golden Gai. This ancient Shinto shrine dedicated to the god of trade and world success, is listed as the most important shrine in Shinjuku. It’s indeed a worthy stopover.

初詣に

If you go to Shinjuku, you can enjoy not only shopping but also visiting a shrine. This shrine is red framed and reminds of me Kyoto little :)

何度か目の前を通って気になっていた神社。
幸いにも会社の初詣でお参りに行く機会ができたので行ってきました。
年末もそうですが年始は企業関係者の参拝で非常に混みますね。
都心にしては広くきれいな神社です。秋は紅葉できれいなんでしょうね。

Very pretty
Oct 2019
This pretty shrine is just round the corner from Golden Gai and Kabukicho, so it's worth just popping along for a few minutes. The entrance way we used was particularly pretty all lit up at night!

Must see

This shrine is very important. I happened to visit it on November 20th, which was the day of the Torinoichi. It is when people gather to pray for work, money and luck.

Not worth seeing!
Aug 2019 • Friends
It was small, nothing there, old, dirty! It took us 10min to walk in & out! There was nothing to see there, just the temple that could use some cleaning & upkeep.
