Smack dab in Tokyo this shrine is a wonderful respite in Nagatacho, right near where I get geared for a spin or two around the Imperial Palace. It reminds me of Fushimi Inari in Kyoto, with is cascade of Torii. The date of this shrine's...More
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.
Taking an escalator to a shrine is not an experience you will have often, so stopping by Hie jinja is a must! The shrine was one of my favourites as it had a bit more character than the others I visited: there was a bit...More
Loved the peaceful atmosphere here where one can do self-reflections and calm our heart down from our daily hectic life.

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.
This temple isn't in a very touristy area so the shrine isn't that crowded but I'd highly recommend checking it out as it's quite traditional and has many buildings which serve different purposes. One of the hidden gems of the complex which I didn't expect...More
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 galleries.
