This shrine is on a busy street on Shinjuku. There is an alley way path that leads to the shrine. It is a small shrine, well kept and yet peaceful when you enter it. On the weekend there are arts and crafts for sales.

We visited here at night, just simply because we had been busy during the day. It gave a different perspective to shrines - so peaceful and quiet right in the middle of a crazy hectic area.

A beautiful in bustling Shinjuku city. Bright orange coloring on the main shrine as the ancillary buildings around it. The access points have large torii gates. There is a minor shrine on sight with multiple toriis gates lining the walkway to it.

Hidden in the heart of Higashi Shinjuku is this shrine. Go on a Sunday for the markets, or at night for a better view.

A simple Buddhist temple in the Shinjuku area. There is often a flea market on Sundays. No entrance unless you are praying.
