A rigid, historical Shinto shrine located in Tokyo. Many visitors visit here every year. Japanese Prime Ministers, historically yet not necessarily all of them, have paid a visit here in the summer to commemorate the deceased during the war. It has a wide variety of buildings. The museum located inside the shrine was interesting. Recommended for Japanese and foreign tourists who want to learn about the history of Japan.

Very large shrine is probably the most iconic here. It is almost a little bit intimidating, but makes me wonder how long and much it took to build such a thing. It is a long way to get to the main entrance, about a few minutes of walk straight. The temple is just like any other ones in Japan, so it did not occur to me to have a special impression. Indeed, this is a great place to visit.

A must see in Tokyo. Come to the garden at the back of shine. The Japanese garden is what inspired Monet to create a series of masterpieces Water Lilies. This garden is probably the best you can see in the world. Feel the tranquil and fluid nature of the moment, and that is the essence of Japanese philosophy of beauty

Yasukuni Shrine is a very well maintained shrine for Japanese war dead. It’s serene and very peaceful, but it’s only 10 minutes walking from the nearby busy metro station.

Too much of historical stuff to really understand the significance. A statue of Radha Binod Pal and his contribution to Japan's peace post WW2 is here. Google the man's name for the significance.
