Nezu Shrine 根津神社

Off the beaten track

The Nezu-Jinja is the main shrine of the Yanesen region, northwest of Ueno Park in Tokyo. It is also one of the oldest shrines in Japan.

A magnificent architecture

 

Indeed, its architecture is quite unusual and much more opulent than what is usually found in shrines.

This style is called Gongen-zukuri and the most extreme version of this style can be found in the Nikko Toshogu Mausoleum. The Nezu shrine is indeed covered with golden sculptures that contrast with its superb vermilion pillars.

You will also find an amazing path of red torii gates , similar to that of the famous Fushimi Inari Taisha in Kyoto.
