  • Hanazono Jinja is a lovely Shrine so close to sShinjuku station, but once you are inside you could be in a different time. Quiet lovely to look around the temple area, and on Sundays they host a Flea....  more »

  • Visit this beautiful shrine today. Love the color and structure. It wasn't too busy here and I think it great for that instead busy time of the year. :)
  • 最近ルールや看板がふえて、なんか懐かしかった花園が  文句しか言わない花園しかみえなうとおもいます。月1ぐらい通るが、雰囲気がね。。。it's a nice shrine on the way to drinking alley. There used to be less signs and less complaints written On The sign but shrines and priests just wanna complain I guess despite getting huge tax benefits. Eitherway , it's kind of lost some of the allure I Used to know it for years ago and though there's a festival once a year here , it's losing abit of its charm for me
