Peaceful shrine in the heart of Shinjuku. However, the staff at the window that sell the omamories (good luck charms) do not want to help and do their job. I went to the window to buy omamories, but they didn't come to the window to help me. Maybe it was because I was a foreigner, maybe not, but I speak Japanese anyway. Not friendly and not good service.

Found this shrine by accident while exploring outside of Unplan hostel. Very quiet and serene place. It was my 1st shrine in Japan.

Super quiet despite being so close to Kabukichō. Not big but defiantly worth a visit! Also has Geino Asama shrine on its property.

Lovely quiet place at night amid the hustle and bustle of Shinjuku. Very lively during festivals with lots of food, drinking and a great atmosphere.
