The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants, bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art galleries.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It was different to other temples and shrines (different colours), it´s beautiful and the torii gates path is also beautiful and great for pictures. Loved the monkey statues and it has an authentic sacred feeling to it.

It's truly amazing how there are shrines and temples that take the hustle and bustle out of the city with a few steps into them. It is a relaxing feature that more urban planners should incorporate.

There’s a good photo op with the red gates, but, otherwise, just average. I would do asakusa or Meiji

A beautiful Shrine hidden in the heart of Akasaka with red torii gates tunnel. There were not many tourists so it's easy to take nice photos without strangers in the scene.
Monkeys are the guardian of the Shrine. They are known to be child-loving animals and will bring prosperity to the children and healthy growth. During our visit, parents brought kids for a blessing. These sacred monkeys also bring good luck in love and relationships.

Walked from Roppongi which was about 20 minutes in July which was very hot and humid. Google Maps takes you through the neighborhood which was off the beaten path, but we got to see where the wealthy lives - european cars and private residences. Not sure it was worth it, but nice to see. Torii gates were pretty. Other than that, not sure we would make the trek again...

It is a very modernized shrine, located in a business area surrounded by tall buildings. The real gem is the Senbontorii behind the Shrine. If you think that Fushimi Inari Shrine is too crowded, this might be an option for you.

This is a colourful and attractive shrine, hidden on top of a hill surrounded by skyscrapers. I wouldn't have known this place existed if I didn't read about it on here. I'm glad I checked it out though, because this is a nice shrine that doesn't seem to attract large crowds like the others in Tokyo do.

There are long sets of stairs leading up to the shrine from all side. Hidden away to the west side of the hill is a narrow stairway with red gates above it - easy to miss, so remember to look out for them! The shrine complex has a few buildings to see, as well as a nice main gate at one entrance.

I walked here from the Imperial Palace but you'd save a lot of time taking the metro instead.

Not one of the big well known shrines but it was a beautiful hidden gem in Akasaka. It has a set of red tori gates going up steps that are small but so wonderful. The shrine itself was beautiful and obviously used by locals as there was a couple getting married there and a baby arriving for a ‘christening ‘ type ceremony. There is also an escalator here at one entrance to help those who struggle with steps. A lovely find in the busy city.

We didn’t know what to expect when he went up the amazing escalators from the main street to the Hie Jinja- but were floored. It’s beautiful and peaceful and has one of the staircases with orange pillars that I thought we might not have a chance to see! We visited more than once since our hotel was steps away.

Since we are only visiting Tokyo and will not be able to see the famous Torii Gate in Kyoto. We added the place to our itinerary.

You can spend half an hour to 1 hour here.

Not much crowd so you can take pictures with the Torii.
