Which shrine?

0 ( +3 / -3 )

Is this not Inari Fushimi in Fushimi-Ku in Kyoto?

Inari Fushimi was my first thought but it looks way to new & the steps definitely look wrong & the tops of the Torii gates look a bit wonkey

I think Hie Jinja, the one near the Diet Building.

I dont think shrines and temples should be a tourist site.

Tina, you are correct, it is located in Akasaka. Very nice place. I think shrines, temples and churches are great tourist spots! The basilica in Montreal is one of the most beautiful churches I've ever been in. They love having visitors.

MarkX, Yes, it's old shrine created by Tokugawa Ieyasu to protect Edo Castle. The basilica in Montreal seems very beautiful and splendid.

T_rexmaxytime, I believe there's nothing wrong with visiting a temple or shrine as long as the person who is visiting is mindful of the importance of it's religious significance and are respectful to it and its patrons.
