This is an authentic shrine area like a campus. In the morning you can even see people in suits coming there before work for a quick prayer.

Go down the hill from the traffic light by the Diet building and turn left. You’ll see the main torii gate entrance. The Shrine dates back to the 1400s; it was destroyed during WW II and was re-built in 1958. The messenger for the shrine...More

Although this shrine is in the middle of many high rise buildings, it is very serene and convenient. The red shrine stairs are picturesque and interesting. Definitely worth a quick visit if you are in the Tokyo area.

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art

You can do the whole visit including up and down the multiple stairs in an hour or less. But take time to wander through the Akasaka area as well.
