A surprisingly calm and quiet shrine atop a hillock, in the middle of bustling minato-ku. There is access by road to a parking area as well near the shrine. A torii and a steep stairway lead up to the shrine.
Above the city and beautiful view. Has a red seal
Nothing against the shrine itself but the woman who runs this place is absolutely rude. It would totally be an one star if it weren't for the shrine ; (
One of my favorite spots in the area. The final stretch of my morning run, go up the 60+ very steep stairs, cool down up top to the sound of water and the fish jumping around in the water. Salute the Gods of Water and Fire, start the day. :) The steps are steep but definitely manageable. Go at your own pace.
Nice place above the city noises. Really relaxing atmosphere over the streets of Tokyo.
