Tori gate was big, look very much ancient, it was in wood natural color ( not like inari's tori gate). A very moment you step in, it was like walking back to the historical moment. I like the feel of the wind and the sound of the forest, birds, and crow. Very relaxing, when i was visit there was variety... More

An extensive garden is open in the city of Tokyo. Here stands the National Stadium built for the Tokyo Olympic Games in 1964. As multiuse stadium, Meiji-Jingu Stadium for baseball, Chichibunomiya Rugby Stadium and some other sports and cultural facilities. Interestingly, some of the structures in the garden look with a western style. Grounds were very beautiful when Cherry Blossom... More

Loved the walk through the tori gates and garden to the shrine itself. A great escape from the hustle and bustle.

The gardens were very beautiful, although the best part you will have to pay a small admission fee for entrance (~$5). The gardens were quite crowded, so it wasn't as much of a 'peaceful' experience as we were looking for, but the natural beauty made up for that. We did get to see a traditional Japanese wedding procession go through... More

It's so mind boggling how something so old can still be so beautiful in our present time. In a country that is so technologically advance, the people still appreciate and love history.

This is a kind of park including old forest and house. Big tree makes us calm, and historical house makes us mystic. But fashionable guys and calm walking people make us you are in real asian travel.

Planted 100 years plus ago to commemorate the passing of the then current Emperor and Empress, this Shrine and forest is peaceful and quite stunning to walk through. A real contrast to busy high rise Tokyo. At the Shrine we saw a traditional Japanese wedding taking place. Well worth a visit.

One of the nicest shrines during our visit to Japan. Park surrounding the shrine is absolutely beautful. To visit either head to Meiji Jingu metro station or take the train to Harajuku station. You are 5 minutes walk from both station.
