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.

    Very large and historic shopping street, covered, and rebuilt after being destroyed many years ago. Full of interesting shops, inside and in the neighborhood. NOT touristy, but a glimpse of real Japanese life.

    新馬場駅のすぐ近くにある、小高い丘の上に設けられた神社です。京急線に乗車し西側の車窓を見ていると必ず目につきます。とりわけ絢爛豪華な神社ではなく、住宅街に囲まれていることもあり、初詣や祭りの時期等を除けば参拝者も少なく、ひっそりとしています。
    東側にある鳥居には見事な龍の彫刻が施され、堂々とした佇まいを見ることが出来ます。鳥居から拝殿に向かう際の階段がかなり急となっていますので、必要に応じて手摺を利用して昇降するといいでしょう。境内には富士塚があり、富士信仰に関連して作られたものですが、今では境内から街並みを眺める展望台の一つとなっています。

    The shrine is located on a small hill near Shinbamba station. If you take the Keikyu line and look out the window on the west side of the train, you will surely see it. It is not a particularly gorgeous shrine, and because it is surrounded by residential areas, there are not many worshippers except during the New Year's visit and festivals, and it is quiet.
    The torii gate on the east side of the shrine has a magnificent dragon carving on it, giving it an imposing appearance. The stairs from the torii to the hall of worship are quite steep, so it is best to use the handrail to climb up and down if necessary. There is a Fujizuka on the shrine precincts, which was built in connection with the Fuji faith, but has now become one of the observatories from which you can view the city from the shrine precincts.

    This is a small local area where it lets you experience what local Japanese life is like away from the big cities.

    This was a pretty shrine but not an easy on to find and stuck away from the main roads near the Shinagawa Bridge beside the river.It was old with some stone statues and plum trees that were starting to bloom.You can walk south from Sinagawa Station or it is quite close to the Keikyu Line and the Kitababa Station

    Given that this is the site which memorialises the remains of many thousands of poor unfortunates who were executed during the Edo period,it is a remarkably understated and somber location. It’s worth a visit if you plan a walk in the shinagawa or Ota area. It’s a bit off the beaten track from the places that are more famous in Japan. The location has a well,where the heads that were lopped off were cleaned afterwards. Other than that it has Buddhist memorial statues.

    I went to the Garden Party the other day, and the garden of the Palace of the Duke of Shimazu was bright with azaleas. Viewing the colourful azaleas, I enjoyed green tea and sweets. There is a Garden Party on the season of azaleas, so I recommend visiting here to see the beautiful blossoms!

    Sakamoto Ryoma apparently spent much of his youth in the area where the residence of the Tosa Clan was located called Samezu Kakae Yashiki. The Hamakawa Hōdai (gun battery) of the residence was located in this particular area and in 2004 excavations revealed stonework that is thought to have been part of the walls of the battery. At the time of Commodore Perry’s second visit to Japan in 1854 Sakamoto Ryoma aged 20 at the time was on duty as one of the battery staff and was studying Japanese sword fencing at the Chiba Dōjō in Edo (Tōkyō). After Perry’s second visit he went to study Western style gunnery taught by Sakuma Shōzan. The road towards where the old foreshore and wharf for the Tosa Clan used to be is now a lively shopping and café area.

    禿坂の桜、まさに桜のトンネル。
    桜祭りの日は、歩行者天国になるため、トンネルを更に実感できます。

    This Shrine has about 3 or 4 different types of goshuin, if you're into it. One for an adjacent Inari Shrine. You will find inexplicable stone sculptures of Doraemon, Pickachu, a Dachshund and even Mickey Mouse. They had super cool "emma' of a fighting tosa inu, but not available for sale any more. For these interesting features, it gets more than just an average rating.

    A few minutes from Togoshi Ginza you'll find the peaceful Togoshi Hachiman Shrine with its impressive entrance decorated by a stone torii gate.
    Once you leave the entrance area, you'll come across the shrine grounds that provide comfy (yet a bit dirty) sofas for a relaxing break.

    At the moment there is some construction work going on but it's no too disturbing.

    The shrine is one the oldest shrine in east Japan and also known for the god of martial arts, sports nowadays. There are many sacred things. Especially a pond for ritual bathing is considered as a lucky spot because it is said water keeps springing for thousand years.

    I went ther by car but it is a 10 minutes walk from JR Kashima station.
