This shrine is very quiet and very clean. If you want to make a wish without hurry, this is the best place. There is a nice cafe right next to the shrine. I ordered a cup of ice cream and a cup of tea. They...More

Akagi shrine was renovated a few years ago, presumably generating a nice profit for its owners thanks to the residence that was built on its premises. It has lost its quaint atmosphere and the cafe where live music could be heard. It keeps its lantern...More

Behind the traditional torii is the completely renewed Shinto shrine by renowned architect Kuma Kengo. The main shrine is made of large glass wall, plain wood panels and yamato-buki steel roof. Attached to the shrine is a “mansion” and at its bottom is a restaurant...More

There are a number of shops in this area surrounding this peaceful shrine. I especially liked the glass windows looking into the shrine; those were unique and beautiful! I love this place because it's simple, calm, has all the traditional things you'd expect at a...More

I was a little over Shrines but this was recommended so I went to spend an hour or so. It is peaceful and serene - plus the flowers and trees make it something special.

Shinjuku is very New York- busy, crowded and commercial. The Akagi Shrine is an oasis in the center of it all. Situated just one block off of the main drag, this quiet corridor is the real deal. A constant stream of worshippers visited the shrine...More

Nearby
Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around

geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
