I encountered this shrine randomly. Hidden gate and seems not tourist attraction. It's Shinto shrine and not much people inside. Usually they just stroll around and we're like the only tourist there.

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.

The shrine itself was interesting but having seen others was not remarkable. However on the Sunday we went there was an antique market in the lanes leading to the shrine which was great.

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.

This is a classic Shinto shrine and has a really peaceful atmosphere to it. It is close to a lot of tourist attractions and is easily visible. Beautifully lit up at night.

Nothing special, just another shrine, however, during the festival it is bustling with many vendors, energy, crowds and lots of food. Great time to visit then.

This Shrine is a peaceful find in Shinjuku. There is not a lot to do there and Shrines aren't generally all that interesting. So it is with this one but it is quiet, has lots of trees and is a nice break. It was only...More

east, there’s a district with long-established
department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku
