My hotel was not far from here. Sumiyoshi Shrine was my first of the kind while visiting Japan. I found the grounds here to be very peaceful and natural. This shrine is pretty big, there are a lot of sections to it. Although big, it...More
The grandest entry way leading to the shrines entrance of the temples/shrines that I visited.
Very well maintained with great gardens surrounding.
It was early morning when I arrived, about 9, and it was very quiet.
Easy walk from Grand Hyatt.

The gate will open at 22:00 on December 31. What time to go is totally up to you--how long are you willing to wait in cold? Sumiyoshi will be scary packed on New Year's Eve/Day, so brace yourself and dress warm. Personally. I'd avoid the mobs of people and go there after ~5pm on Jan 1st.

You mean Yasukuni Shrine? Sumiyoshi is in Osaka. From Hanzomon Station, Yasukuni Shrine is about a 10 minute walk. You can take the Hanzomon Line to Kudanshita (1 stop) and go out of Exit 1 if you prefer.
