When you're in Japan its important to become one with the culture. This place provides an amazing inside into the culture of Japan and how it's people worship their god. You can wash your hands at the water station, get a fortune from the shop and tire it around a rope to make the wish come true. The only down side is that so many people are there taking photos with the arch ways. They need to learn to have respect. It does make for a good Instagram post.

Very beautiful place to visit. Although it is not a popular temple, it is one of the best to visit. The atmosphere is quite authentic as well as the architecture.
This place has also a beautiful but not free garden within its walls.
I recommend to go there to through the numerous toriis too.

What a majestic and beautiful place! I went here around April second week and the flowers felt like blossoming at full!
Very vibrant, colourful atmosphere and the tori gates have a lasting impression on everyone
Do hit the gong once you are past the entrance and in front of the shrine (not sure if it is called the gong or something else)

This is one of the better shrines are we went to whilst we were in Tokyo. Not one of the biggest but had a great vibe to the area. You had lots of the red gates they could take great photos with. There were some stunning gardens which they did charge a little bit to get into but not a great deal of money at all. There were some public toilets near at hand should you need to use the conveniences. And it was fairly straightforward to find. Would highly recommend a visit.

Too crowded yesterday because of Golden Week. But i still get the pretty pict with azalea flowers as the background. You can go to see the flowers area n the shrine with 200 yen. It will be better if you can go there before the opening time. So you don't have to join the long line. :D There's also many stalls that sell foods, snacks, drinks, and souvenir there! have a great experience here!
