If you go to Golden Gai, then this is the next block. If not then out the east exit of JR Shinjuku station and walk along Yasakuni-dori on your left past the street with the Shinjuku Ward Office and you will see it. Walk thru...More

This Shrine is a peaceful find in Shinjuku. There is not a lot to do there and Shrines aren't generally all that interesting. So it is with this one but it is quiet, has lots of trees and is a nice break. It was only...More

This was a small shrine in the middle of Shinjuku. But it was nicely laid out with cherry blossom trees as a context. We enjoyed seeing it and observing the practice of the rituals at a Shinto shrine. Very interesting.

Lovely shrine to visit. The cherry blossoms were out and it was beautiful. Peaceful in the middle of a busy day. Would recommend

After you have visited Golden Gai, why not drop by the Hanazono Shrine, its not as busy as the Meiji jingu shrine. Its traditional and the locals frequent here . Watch the locals and follow their lead on how to offer prayers.

A beautiful 17th century shrine between the red light district and business area. The shrine is beautiful and we caught it during cherry blossoms. Parts covered in scaffolding, assuming it's getting repairs and painting.

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
