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.

The Shrine and surrounding gardens are lovely to slow down, take your time and enjoy. The dense, green gardens have many paths, don't just head down the main path / road. If you have time, head down the other tracks and take the long route....More

Went there last month with my cousin. Even though we walked quite far to reach the shrine, but strolling along the road with lots of greeneries is worth the long walk. It was beautiful. We can't believe that it's located in the middle of Tokyo,...More

The Meiji Shrine is beautiful and it was a lovely walk along the forested walkway to the shrine. You could purchase paper or the wooden boards and make a wish and hope it comes true.

Definitely worth a visit if you’re in Tokyo. It makes you feel like you’re far away from the traffic & the crowds. Great photo opportunities too with strong colours. A must!

Great for photo-taking & a great walk in the forest to reach the shrine. Witness a traditional wedding procession at the shrine. Many kids were also dressed in traditional costumes.

You wouldn't have guessed that there's a huge shine located at the heart of Shibuya. This shrine reminds me so much of my trip to Korea last year. The park that we went has the same feeling with this shrine. For nature lovers, you will...More

I've reviewed Meiji Jingu before. This time I'd like to talk about the amazing trees that surround it as well as the lovely garden nearby. The approach to Meiji Jingu is characterized by very wide pedestrian boulevards in a great forest. Whoever designed the shrine...More

Beautiful shrine with giant ancient trees flanking the pathway. It’s a decent walk from the entrance to the shrine. Well worth it. Be prepared for crowds year-round as it’s a major attraction and next to the huge shopping district next to Harajuku station. I went...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.
