This was one of first visits and we were amazed by the size, and the information available to us from strangers who stopped and spoke to us sometimes in German but most guessed right and used English. A wonderful experience
Definitely a must see sight for anybody visiting Tokyo! The buildings and shrines there are absolutely beautiful and so scenic. It can get pretty busy so I would recommend going early in the morning if you can, and definitely visit it at night as well...More
