In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.

A serene shrine in the center of the city

Located in the central Tokyo neighborhood of Akasaka, Nogi-jinja Shrine offers a relaxing moment away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Walk through the shrine grounds of verdant foliage, orange torii gates, and impressive traditional architecture, with the sleek towers of Roppongi visible on the skyline. If you’re in the area on the fourth Sunday of the month, be sure to check out the shrine’s flea market to find selections of furniture, clothing, and cookware.

Nogi-jinja Shrine was first built in 1923 to honor famed Meiji-era (1868-1912) general Maresuke Nogi and his wife, who committed seppuku (ritual suicide) following the death of Emperor Meiji. The general’s house sits adjacent to the shrine and is open for viewing three times a year (dates vary).
