Two, large gates frame the entrance to this Shinto shrine that was dedicated to Emperor and Empress Meiji. Completed in 1920, repairs were required after the shrine was damaged during World War II.

Beautiful large garden in the middle of busy Tokyo neighborhood with impressive and active sintoist shrine. We visited in downpour, but lots of people were there for ceremonies, including regular worshippers belonging to this shrine, people having ceremonies for babies and more. The history is...More

The grounds are beautiful with 100,000 trees donated from all over Japan and from overseas. Emperor Meiji is the great-grandfather of the current emperor.

The whole park area is very beautiful. The shrine itself is a little boring, but the walk through the tree canopy is wonderful. There is also a small garden in the park that is absolutely gorgeous. It is worth going just for the garden, which...More

Nothing much to say. Instant classic and worth visiting. Just go there early because it closes around 5.

We fell in love with Tokyo, ancient and modern. Meiji-Jingu shrine was a frantically busy, yet exceptionally calm and reflective location to visit. Touristic but a must see location despite the crowd and guidebook instruction.

We took the subway train to Harajuku Station and walked to the Meiji Shrine/Park. The weather was hot since we went in the early afternoon, but the park was surprisingly well shaded by the trees surrounding it, so it did not seem that hot. We...More

The complete Shinto experience in memory of a popular emperor is a beautiful garden set with various examples of the religion. Well worth the trip-- try to go to a service.

This shrine is located right next to JR Harajuku station. You go to the right side from the station towards the back of the building. You can walk around inside of the shrine. I saw some Shinto priest conducting traditional ceremony.

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
