Lovely, simple, quiet and very nice shrine in the middle of Tokyo. Best part is that Gram is right across it!! But seriously, it is a very nice shrine that should be respected

Really beautiful shrine. All countries use propaganda. At least Japan is not currently putting it's political enemies in concentration camps and selling their organs. Free Hong Kong.

Historical place. It’s a shrine built in 1869 (renovated after that) by King Meji in the commemoration of died warriors. The Tori gate is gigantic and shrine is worth a visit.
You can access the place via Kudanshita station.
