The Shrine had lots of families and their young children dressed in traditional Japanese clothes as part a Shinto tradition. Grounds were peaceful and quiet.

Serene and comforting. They have a shorter version of the torii in Fukushina Inari Shrine. There was a wedding when we visited and it was a good photo op.

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
galleries.

You can do the whole visit including up and down the multiple stairs in an hour or less. But take time to wander through the Akasaka area as well.
