If you want to take some nice photos like that of Kyoto's Fushimi Inari but is not planning a trip to Kyoto, Hie Shrine which is conveniently located in Tokyo's Akasaka will make a good spot for you to take those insta worthy photos.

This shrine was beautiful, and I got the feeling it is more so a locals shrine than a tourist attraction. The Shrine itself was beautiful, not touristy at all. I was able to purchase two omamori (good luck pouches) for about 1800 yen. However, the...More

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art

You can do the whole visit including up and down the multiple stairs in an hour or less. But take time to wander through the Akasaka area as well.
