This is a nice shrine so close to Capitol Hotel Tokyu. It was such a good idea to check this out after long flight to Tokyo. It was a very peaceful place with several local people. Spritual.

Located in Tameike-sanno and Akasaka area, the shrine up on the hill is where you can enjoy traditional Japanese architectures and living culture. This place is surprisingly quiet in the busiest part of Tokyo so good for just resting, too. Use an escalator to ascend....More

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
