A very nice smaller shrine in Yotsuya not far from the police station, and a short walk east from Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden. This shrine is compact, but there's a lot to see in every corner. It will help if you know a bit about its history before visiting - you'll appreciate it more. Certainly a must-see for ghost-tour travelers.... More

The Tori gate here is splendid...temple is peaceful, the serenity is what this is all about in my opinion, and forms the backbone of Japanese society.

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
