This small but authentic bit of Japanese culture was a pleasant surprise. Located just across the street from Hotel Monterey Akasaka it is known as the shrine for the inari and also the goddess of "flow" - artistic flow, and is frequented by entertainers.

Very close to Centurion Hotel Grand Akasaka, and was well worth visiting. When I went the sunlight coming through the lanterns was perfect. There are also a few vendors offering food and shopping opportunities.

Many statues and small shrines in the property. It is very near the Akasaka metro station, and it is located in the city of Toyokawa.

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
