New Years is a crazy time of year in Tokyo and after days of non-stop bargain hunting it was time for a break for our minds and our purses so we decided to visit a little know place, Nezu Shrine. The shrine isn't too far away from Ueno Park but isn't as popular as Sensoji or the Meiji Shrine but definitely worth a visit.
After being caught up in the new years sale madness and surrounded buy a sea of humanity all pushing and shouting I thought a break at a quiet temple was exactly what we needed and although the temple still had a line of visitors all waiting to give their prayers for the new year thankfully it wasn't nearly as busy as the other shrines we had visited.
Nezu Shrine reminded me a bit of Fushimi Inari in Kyoto with it's Tori Gates and fox statues which was one of my favourite places we visited in Japan so I enjoyed our little visit to Nezu Shrine as it gave me some sense of peace after days of craziness it was like I could breathe again and I enjoyed just watching the koi fish swimming around the waterfalls and the peacefulness around me.
What are your favourite places to visit to feel a sense of peace?
