Meiji Jingu, Tokyo Reviews
This is a shrine and forest-walkway dedicated to the Emperor Meiji and his family. The walkway has a very-wide path surrounded by a forest of tall trees, and crosses through 3 beautiful, giant gates. It's a very relaxing walk to the shrine. The shrine itself is rather large, but actually there's not much to do there except take photos of the plaza. If you're lucky, you may see a traditional wedding procession or people blessing their new vehicles.
In the middle of the hustle and bustle of Tokyo is the Meiji Jingu Shrine. Opened throughout the year, the shrine's park and foliage is only part of its attraction. Historically, it was created to enshrine the Emperor and Empress Meiji, according to Japan National Tourism Organization. Travel + Leisure reports that 30,000,000 people visit the site annually for everything from sacred food offering and prayers to cultural exhibitions and festivals.
All that I can say, is that it is really huge. The land surrounding the shrine is a huge forest in the middle of the city. Feels nice to be in, like a quick relaxing getaway from all the hustle and bustle of Harajuku. Although it will take a short while to get to the shrine from the entrance, and it will take a long while to explore the whole place, but definitely worth your time and effort.
Must visit while you are in Tokyo. An oasis of calm and spirituality in the middle of a noisy city. Unlike other temples/shrines we visited, it is in the middle of a park so adds to the tranquility. We bought wooden tiles (500Y each) and wrote prayers for our families. Amazing to look at all the prayers in so many languages, I stood there reading them for ages. Connecting to my fellow humans. Though it was quite busy (noon time on a weekday) people seemed to be respectful mostly. Talking in lowered voices and not being jerks taking pictures. Please do the same.
A great place to visit. Kindly reminder: Tourists should walk two sides (right and left) instead of walking in the middle as a kind of respect. It's because in their tradition only the God/ people in highness could walk in the middle only. I saw many tourists don't know and take pictures in the middle. They will not blame you but it is not a right thing in their tradition.
