    Must see in Tokyo. Amongst many other great sites with a market street in front. Get some tempura in this area.

    Try visiting at night when it is beautifully lit up and in the early morning. The shops will all be closed at those times but much less crowded and easier to get better photos.

    Remember to give the fortune stick container a good swirl before shaking a stick out or you will have a high or 100% chance to get the same fortune stick number as the previous devotee.

    It's beautiful, but crowded during peak hours. If crowds are an issue, go early in the morning.

    There is an Awashimado Hall in the edge of the site.It is dedicated to Awajima Myojin.The Awajima Myojin is assumed to be a god that there is miraculous efficacy in easy delivery and the child giving.

    Overcrowded with tourists. Also they hosting huge festival Sanja Matsuri in the middle of May, it's three days of madness with two millions of religious people around, don't miss it.

    I was sad to learn that this building is a rebuilt model of the original, which was destroyed in WW2, but the architecture is still gorgeous and the tourist bits worthy of a visit on their own merit.

    Tokyo's oldest Buddhist temple dates from the year 645. Just outside its Thunder Gate entrance is a bustling market where you can find anything.

    Listen for the shaking noises and go to them. Pay ¥100 and grab your stick from the metal jar. Find your fortune card among the drawers

    Come here on NYE to enjoy the hordes of people bringing a visit to the temple to donate money and ask for good luck. A lot of foodstalls on the surrounding premises.

    I came late at night and it pretty quiet and certainly striking. Heard it can get busy in the daytime, though!

    Extremely crowded but good if you've not got a lot of time to spend in Tokyo. Can get a fortune inside the temple, which is sometimes partly closed for private ceremonies.

    Buy a "goshuin" (temple stamp book) for ~¥1000; at each temple you go to, go to the "souvenir" shop and ask them to stamp it. A fantastic way to remember your trip to Japan.
