Pretty even when it's closed
I was in the Akasaka Mitsuke area recently and the hotel I stayed at was a short walk to Hie Shrine. I figured that one night after dinner I'd pop over since it was still light outside. One bummer - this shrine does have opening hours (5am-6pm), and I didn't know this before I popped over so I didn't actually get to see much of anything! In saying that, the small part of what I did see was really pretty. I climbed up the stairs and just loved the torii arch juxtaposed with the city skyline. You could still wander the grounds and look at the building from the outside, but anything more than that has to be done within the opening hour window. I'll be back to explore more at some point!
