A Shinto Shrine behind one of the busiest town, Kabukicho of Shinjuku. 10 minutes walk from the Shinjuku station. The main shrine is standard Japanese Shinto Shrine. I’ve found a small one for happy married couples also. Don’t miss it.

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.

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.
