Togo Shrine
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.

To get out of the bustle of Harajuku, come visit this serene shrine! You will also learn quite about of history about Admiral Togo, so all around a great experience.

I agree with another reviewer, if you are in the area and you have visited all the main tourist attractions, then this is worth a stop but don't make a special trip unless you are really interested in the history. Like another world. Very peaceful as not many people know it is there. A world away from the busy Takeshita-dori Street (located just off it). Had I not been with a local, I would never have known. Lovely.

A little harder to find than anticipated, but a nice serene shrine away from the bustle of nearby Takeshita Street, apparently for an important Japanese admiral although unlike other shrines, there didn't appear to be any details. I visited as an "add on" to seeing the Meiji Jingu shrine and Yoyogi Park. Worth finding and taking a few photos.

After the hustle and bustle of the food and shopping streets the Togo Shrine was a place that we found accdently and a welcoming break from the crowded streets and like a lot of shrines in Japan they are so quite even considering they are only a few steps away from the throngs of people

This shrine is quite well kept and honors Marshall Togo for the Japanese naval victory over the Russian Baltic Fleet which essentially ended the Russo=Japanese War.

Smaller shrine near Harajuku area and Takeshita Street shopping. Worth the walk to find it for some nice pictures.

Togo Shrine is located just a few streets away from the busy Takeshita street.

The shrine is dedicated to the Japanese naval hero, Togo Heihachiro. There are several nods to the shrine's maritime origins spread across the grounds. The shrine office also distributes pamphlets in English which briefly discuss the history of the shrine.

Finally, the shrine offers a special Hello Kitty-themed goshuincho for sale, likely due to its proximity to Harajuku. While you can buy Sanrio goshuincho elsewhere, I believe the particular version sold at Togo is exclusive to the shrine.

Among the hundreds of people wandering around the streets of Harajuku for shopping, the last thing you’d expect is to find a traditional Japanese garden and shrine.
If you are in Harajuku area visiting Togo Shrine is a must.
Entry is free.

Togo Shrine almost seems out of place among the tall and changing city, but having said that, it's a place to slow down relax and feel a little peace, within yourself.

We happened upon two weddings taking place when we visited this beautiful shrine after being on Harajuku Takeshita street. Not easy to find unless you have GPS. A smallish shrine, but very clean and presentable. It was really cool seeing weddings taking place. Very serene and an escape from the hordes of people in the busy streets.
