We were based in Tokyo for 3 nights and did not expect to see such a magnificent shrine. The Hie Jinja is tucked away behind lush trees in a very busy city centre road in Nagata-cho. There are several ways to approach the shrine; from...More

The shrine was located a few blocks away from my hotel. The hundred steps or so to reach the shrine were surrounded by red archways and as soon as I reached temple level I was surrounded by fluttering red banners. The temple grounds were immaculately...More

Go down the hill from the traffic light by the Diet building and turn left. You’ll see the main torii gate entrance. The Shrine dates back to the 1400s; it was destroyed during WW II and was re-built in 1958. The messenger for the shrine...More

Although this shrine is in the middle of many high rise buildings, it is very serene and convenient. The red shrine stairs are picturesque and interesting. Definitely worth a quick visit if you are in the Tokyo area.

This is a nice shrine. It is so close to the Capitol Tokyu Hotel. This is a hidden place in the concrete jungle and on Sundays you could see Japanese weddings in here. If your hotel is nearby and you have not checked in yet...More

A short climb up about a hundred steps. You need to be respectful and follow tradition. I.e. Hand washing and bow on entering the shrine. A must visit.

It’s hard to imagine that there is a property shrine hidden behind skyscrapers. The main entrance has escalators bringing worshippers to the shrine although it is nice to walk up if the weather is nice. There are main building and small shrine called Inari which...More

There is a escalator to the shrine . Or you can walk up too.. It's a big shrine with a souviner shop located on the left side . The tori gate behind the carpark was simply beautiful .

Very beautiful and authentic one. I was told it’s one of the 3 famous shrine in Tokyo by a Japanese friend. The shrine is not big, so it’s like a 30mins visit but there’s a Japanese cafe next to it, which you can enjoy a...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
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.
