I don't know that I would go out of the way to visit this shrine, but if you are in the neighborhood it's worth a stop. It's a small complex, especially compared to the other major shrines and temples in Tokyo, but much more peaceful...More

We visited the shrine with a Japanese TripAdvisor friend who told us to be sure to return here in early May. He was right, but more about that another time. In autumn, we were the only people visiting the shrine mid-afternoon on a lovely sunny...More

Definitely a shrine worth visiting if you are not a fan of crowds. It is beautiful and serene. It has a nice pond with lots of fish, turtles and birds. The shrine doesn't have too many visitors as it is not near many attractions. I...More

First shrine that we went to and the buildings were so elaborate. The area was peaceful and not crowded by tourists. It had paths to other areas of the shrine.

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping

Hi! The shrine is always open. They only charge a fee to walk inside the azalea garden when the plants are in bloom. Not sure if there will still be blooms when you arrive but you can always visit. You might be lucky and... More
