NOTE: the alley is under construction from June 5th to the middle of July 2017. The shrine is still there but it's prohibited to enter for 5 weeks. It will be here when you come in the summer 🙂
This spot is one of the great secrets of Tokyo. Hidden just 5 meters from the busiest street in the city lies a shrine dating back to the Edo period. HANABUSA SHRINE or "Hanabusa Inari Jinja" is a place I first learned about 10 years ago on a location shoot for TV and still to this day, it's still a totally unknown spot. Shhhh! Let's keep it this way.
