We visited on a festival day and witnessed a wedding. I would suggest spring or early-November. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, it requires walking. Many bathrooms throughout.

Discovered by chance, a place of total peace and tranquility. Beautiful scenery and temples around. It is perfectly located, only a step away from the hustle and bustle of one of the busiest areas of Tokyo.

This Shrine is not only beautiful but very peaceful and quiet. It is set in a park like setting and has wide walk ways throughout. We went in the early afternoon and it was not to crowded. The park is very large and has several entrances. Would recommend this as a shrine to visit.

I just returned from Japan where I visited Yoyogi park and Yoygi Hachimangu Shrine. It was a beautiful walk thru the park to the Shrine. We passed the Barrels of Sake wrapped in Straw and Grand Shrine Gate on the way. It was very interesting to see and take pictures of! I would highly recommend visiting this Shrine.

This shrine was established in 1644, and it is located in a good residential district where is near Shinjuku. People get to the shrine from Yoyogi-Hachiman station by foot, and they can see the shrine on a hill surrounded by deeply bushes. The shrine was smaller than other shrines, but I felt strong power of Japanese gods in that place.... More

great cultural experience, it was crazy to think this is 5 minutes from the busy centre of Harajuku! If your not looking to do too many temples, this was an easy one to get to.

Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
