Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The Automn matsuri (October 1st) is a must, it's also a nice place for wedding or new year.
    The parc is wide and full of huge trees, the shrine is very quiet and wide (not during matsuri of course).
    There is some no theater also sometime and other traditional event inside the shrine.

    Beautiful cool & tranquil sanctuary on a hot Tokyo day. Gardens are meticulously kept, lots of birds and insects plus the plants and trees were in excellent condition. A really lovely retreat from the hubbub of the town

    We got tired over the years visiting places like Asakusa for our anual new years prayer, because those have become to over-crowded. This is the second year we went to Omiya Hachiman and it is still big enough for a festive atmosphere, but feels intimate compared to the 'big' ones. Food stalls were great.

    Had a family weekend trip for O'Hanami. We actually biked over from Nakano.
    And that was a fun part of the trip as well.
    We used the path along the Zenpukuji River and it was a very nice ride.

    Nice large park with lots different places and space. Definately want to go back and do some more exploring. We were just there picnic and bike ride.

    Also looks like you can reserve picnic sites where you get a concrete pad to set up a grill.

    Lovely morning trip down memory lane at the Suginami Animation Museum, greeted by childhood faves like Kimba the white lion and G-force on the front walls. Inside all the nostalgic pieces we only got glimpses of growing up in Australia in the 80’s. A digital guided tour made my children appreciate what went into creating Anime ‘back in the day’ , and an animation room for creating basic animations let them try themselves. Highlight for me(as an arty type) was my family all on the light boxes tracing, trying to create their own animations!

    We visited Renko-ji shrine from Tokyo. The temple is supposed to retain ashes of our freedom struggle leader, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, who is rumoured to hv died of a plane crash in Japan.

    We stayed in Japan this time for a fortnight and it was Sunday, 1st Oct,’23- final day of stay in Japan .. On a prodding from my wife, my searched for net. Earlier my impression was that it’s a far off place. Google search yielded some useful info..Perhaps these were fm TripAdvisor. It gave direction how to reach from a Tokyo. One post was from a Bangladesh enthusiast .Another said, if one is a true Indian visiting Tokyo, he must visit this pilgrim.

    Renko-ji temple official address is 3-30-20 Wada Suginani, 166-0012 Tokyo Prefecture. It’s just 14km & half an hour Train ride from Tokyo station. One has to take Marunouchi line subway bound for Ogikubo. To get down at HIGASHI-KOENJI station (Code M-04)- It’s 14th station from Tokyo. From Rly Station , it’s 10mins walk (500m) thru the lovely land landscaped Sanshi-no-Mori park.
    Japanese ppl are so helpful and polite everywhere. .one boy accompanied us to temple. Quiet, neighbourhood shrine —no soul around. Doors of temple opens once a year. One Bangladesh Tourist came and helped us with a pic together against bust of our national hero. It had msgs from Nehru, Vajpayee, Indira Gandhi. It’s a historic place lying in obscurity

    The park is lovely and is only a short 15 to 20 minute walk from either Kichijoji or Nishi-Ogikubo station. One of the things I like about the park is peace and quiet on most days. I lived in Sekimachi for 2 years in the early 1990s and it was just a short walk to the park. Another interesting thing is the beautiful houses that surround the park - Zempukuji is a fairly upmarket suburban area. On my recent visit to Tokyo the park and the houses hadn't changed much in 25 odd years. Still quiet and peaceful.

    Well kept, large and lovely shrine. Would love to see a noh performance one day. The kanmusubi bracelet they created (special paper fabric) is brilliant and tasteful.

    Attended this festival twice in the three years I am living here. For me, this is the best summer festival in Tokyo. Men, women, and children, all the young and old dancing together to the traditional Japanese music, it is just so lovely and enjoyable to watch. The atmosphere is lively, definitely worthwhile to make the trip to this festival if you’re in Tokyo during the hottest month in August. Even though the streets are narrow and the place is crowded, you hardly feel any tension as the audience are all so respectful of one another. If you’re a foreigner visiting this event, please reciprocate the respect to the locals to maintain the peace and harmony of this lovely culture.

    This crescent shaped mall in Asagaya is a great place for locals living in the area to do their shopping but it doesn't mean that tourists won't get anything out from coming here. As there are so many variety of shops in the mall, there's a good chance you could pick something interesting up as a souvenir or anything else for that matter. I enjoyed walking through the long mall and checking out the shops. It may not be on the list of places that tourists go to whilst staying in Tokyo but I'd say come here and explore the area. You may end buying something you can't find anywhere else.
