This was my favourite shrine we visited in Tokyo, it was very quiet before 10am anytime we went and is a great unobstructed photo opportunity for tori shrines. There is a little shop where you can buy charms and dedications in the form of white foxes or tori gates etc. We also saw some weddings and kimono phot shoots happening here. Very active and very beautiful spot.

Entry to the shrine is free. The shrine is located in the city center, but has many greenery surrounding it. The map of the temple is provided in the photos. As shown in the map, there are 2 entrance - one that leads you to the red Tori gates while the other one leads you to the temple directly. You will have to climb up flights of stairs at the Tori gates, while at the other entrance, they have escalators up and down at both sides of the stairs. Really a safe saver. In 🇯🇵, the way to pray or worship is to make a bow and then throw the money into the offertory box. Bow twice, clap your hands twice and then make another bow deeply Locals come here to pray for blessings in love, success and prosperity.

The Tori Gates here are amazing. It’s like you’re entering a portal to a different dimension. The place is also spacious. They even sell charms here. There’s also a very long escalator available which is great for senior citizens and tired people. We had a lot of great photos here and videos as well. The staff here are also polite. While they are not fluent in speaking english, they really did went out of their way to explain the charms that they’re selling. Totally recommended

An amazing and surprising escape from the city in the middle of Tokyo. A place to find some peace & serenity. Easy to get to with a quick walk from the Harry Potter cafe. Lots of other food options nearby by along with the house of parliament only a few minutes walk away.

I found tranquillity in the middle of big city when I accidentally came across this shrine while walking around Tokyo. It's a quite small temple but worth visiting. It was in autumn and I saw some locals celebrating Japanese holiday by dressing up in Kimonos. I captured some beautiful moments with my phone camera. I suggest that you should visit this place when you're exploring Tokyo.
