I took the wrong turn and ended up some where else first. So by the time I got to the shrine it was getting dark. In a way it was good as the cool weather made it rather relaxing. Although there were people in traditional...More

A serene place right in the middle of bustling city of Tokyo. The main entrance is not far from the famous Harajuku Station and Takeshita Street. Really convenient to visit it on the same day after a stroll along Omotesando and Takeshita street. At the...More

The yoyogi park and Meiji shrine is beautiful. When you enter it's like entering a totally different place. Old big trees and a calm vibe.

The two large "gates" one either end that serve as an entrance to the shrine are huge and impressive. There aren't many temples or shrines in Tokyo compared to Kyoto so this one is a must on my list. It's in a busy center so...More

The surrounding grounds are beautiful with lovely gardens which are well maintained. The shrine itself is huge and very impressive. At the time of my visit the temple was surrounded by scaffolding so difficult to see. Worth a visit!

When compared with Kyoto, Tokyo only offers a few 'must see' shrines and temples, but this is high up the list. It's a lovely, peaceful place to escape the bustling crowds of Harajuku and admire the always-impressive architecture of temple buildings, and there's also a...More

Hard to believe the Meiji Shrine is in such a huge block of land in close proximity to the busy city district near Harajuku Station and adjacent to Yoyogi Park. The natural outlook of the massive torii gate at the main entrance of shrine features...More

So many things must have taken place on these hallowed grounds. If you are lucky you will get to see the important members of the shrine. The priests and others going about their day. Try to go early in the day on a weekday. There...More

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.

If you get off at Harajuku (Yamanote line), you can do the shopping area of Harajuku, and then afterwards walk through the park to Meiji Jingu
