This Shinto Shrine is located in one of the most posh areas, Akasaka, which is not very far from Roppongi of the Minato Ward. This Shrine has a lot of trees that it feels so close to nature and is being blesses by nature. The topping on the cake was when they played a chime music when it turned 5pm. This shrine also displays 3 huge chariots for the Gods. Absolutely mindblowing designs!! Please give this shrine a visit, if anyone feels like going to a shrine in Akasaka.

Lovely Shrine to visit specially on weekends when everything else is overcrowded. It’s a quiet and hidden shine Surrounded by trees. For 100¥ you can buy a pair of cherries (crafted) make a wish & tied it into small tree. If you will be in the Akasaka area in Tokyo visit this shrine!

This is a Shinto Shrine where the primary spiritual guardian of Akasaka is enshrined. The guardian protects against misfortune, gives peace and prosperity. People also prayed for good match. During our visit, there's a couple being blessed for their marriage. What a nice surprise to witness the ceremony.
