This big shrine is probably the most famous in Tokyo, and you can see that from the grat amounts of people that visit it at all times. The shrine is beautiful but nothing exceptional.

After walking through the packed throng of Takeshita street, it was a sheer pleasure to enter the serenity of Yoyogi Park. The canopy of the enormous trees along the wide pedestrian boulevard leading to the shrine was almost surreal after the experience of the previous...More

naturally, it's a very touristy area but absolutely worth a visit for its historical significance! A walk through Yoyogi park is also a joy to complement the visiting of the shrine. We were lucky to witness the quiet procession of a wedding even!

It's a lovely walk through the park and there are some areas still available to view but on the whole, the shrine is behind hoardings so not really visible at this time. Not sure if the completion date

What a wonderful day out with a Shinto wedding ceremony thrown in. It is hard to believe this forest is not pristine.

After going to Senso-Ji which to me was like a nightmare Disneyland experience with all the crowds, it was so lovely to be in the calm of this gorgeous temple. A pity that the main structure is under covers for renovation but the courtyard around...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.

I suggest seeing Tokyo,Osaka and Kyoto. The Railway system will easily and quickly take you there. In Tokyo the subway system is great and will take you from where ever you are. You will be walking your shoes if anyway... More
