We visited during the tori no ichi festival and it was super crowded and congested. Great experience!

Beautiful shrine in the middle of a neighborhood. It was very relaxing here. It was free to come here. Plan on spending 10-20 minutes here as it is quite small. But worth seeing if you are in the area.

In early November, the Tori No Ichi is fantastic and stay around the local bars for whole day festivities.
