This was by far my favourite shrine and temple complex in Tokyo. It's almost like you're not in a city at all- it's so serene and the gardens are extensive and beautiful. This is a must-see when in Tokyo.

Beautiful architecture and nature. The place is very calmful and gives you much needed break from the city.

The Meji shrine is one of the more popular shrines in Tokyo. While there are shrines and temples around every corner, The Meji Shrine is particularly breathtaking. It is understood that you are in a sacred place as soon as you walk through the torii...More

When visiting this place, it is better to know about the religion of Japan. Shinto is around 30~40%, buddism is about 70%, christian around 10%. Shinto has no image, so when visiting shinto shrine, normally there are no statue. This place is similar to other...More

From the hustle and bustle of busy Tokyo, find peace at Meiji Jingu, a lavish park with ancient temples between Shinjuku and Harajuku. Well worth a visit!

A very tranquil walk along a tree lined avenue to the impressive shrine is a soothing antidote to a visit to the adjacent buzzing Harajuku neighbourhood of Tokyo. After visiting the Shrine you can wander into Yoyogi Park.

The most crowded place on the New Year's Day in Japan, but a very calm and quiet place on weekdays. The shrine is surrounded by deep forest, so you'll forget that you are in Tokyo. It's a great place for relaxation and meditation.

It's a temple like dozens of others you can see in Tokyo or Japan. If you're not a believer it's rather uninteresting. What is nice, however, is the park around it, the sort of which I hadn't expected in the middle of such a huge...More

Escape the busy streets and go for a stroll through the park! The shrine is really a bonus. It is beautiful although there is not a lot of signage in english.

This shrine is part of a very large park with food, displays etc. Like most shrines in Japan, you can get you japanese style "autograph" book signed by one of the employees. It is a nice reminder of all the shrines you may visit.

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.
