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.

A decent shrine, accessible from several streets; small and typical. Kind of an evening hang out for teens but rather peaceful. Its a shame the rather bland boxy architecture of Shinjuku has been built up around it, leaving little extra space in the environment to...More

We found it by accident. Not an outstanding shrine site. It was quiet late afternoon and their appears to be lots of work going on at this time so few buildings to see.

This was a small shrine in the middle of Shinjuku. But it was nicely laid out with cherry blossom trees as a context. We enjoyed seeing it and observing the practice of the rituals at a Shinto shrine. Very interesting.

Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and
contains the busiest train station in the world. To
the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo
Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the
east, there’s a district with long-established
department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku
Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the
Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for
