The grandest entry way leading to the shrines entrance of the temples/shrines that I visited. Very well maintained with great gardens surrounding. It was early morning when I arrived, about 9, and it was very quiet. Easy walk from Grand Hyatt.

Located within 5 minute walk from Watanabedori Subway Station. Very beautiful shrine with small koi pond. A great getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Have stayed at the hotel next door twice, but didn't realise this was here. I visited on a really rainy day, so there was nobody around. Enjoyed the peace, calm and watching the rain drop into the pond. It was lovely, despite the weather.
