This shrine was beautiful, and I got the feeling it is more so a locals shrine than a tourist attraction. The Shrine itself was beautiful, not touristy at all. I was able to purchase two omamori (good luck pouches) for about 1800 yen.

The area also hosts the National Art Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art galleries.
