A modern shrine in the business district

Hie shrine is close to my workplace so that I have been interested in the shrine.When I visited there, first I was surprised that there was a big escalator behind a Torii gate!and I thought this is the shrine in the business district in Tokyo.By the way, this entrance stands out than the another entrance in Sanno Otokozaka, however the latter is the main entrance.Also, I was surprised at Chozu-ya house.Water came out automatically when I approached.Other than that, in rest place, there is a wistaria-trellis which sprays mist to cool down the area. Also there was a stroller parking.looked like a modern shrine.
