Beautiful Akagi shrine by the famous Kenzo Tange is a charming shrine. Hidden from the street noise, it is very quite and serene, beautiful clean modern vibe. The stairs near the shrine will take you down an old street with pretty little houses, old Tokyo...More

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

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

It's a small neighborhood shrine in Kagurazaka. If you're in the area, stop by but not worth your time to visit otherwise.

Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around
the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in
Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a
photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old
Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this
day, and there are long-standing restaurants with
geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
