The shrine had a very peaceful feel to it and was nice to look around. There is a little room you can go in which tells you the history of the shrine and about General Nogi and his wife. I found it very interesting!

I wouldn't say it's a must-see, but it's an unusual shrine and there's some good people watching. There's a subway station almost next to it, and Roggongi's museums and shops are within walking distance.

You are welcomed by a row of chalet style huts selling kimono's and other tourist stuff. Then the temple appears with its red lanterns and incense fire. A worthwhile visit.

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
galleries.
