If you're looking for a peaceful, forested place to decompress, go to this shrine. Lots of pathways and trails to contemplate life. A real jewel in the middle of bustling Tokyo.

It's very relaxing to walk around the area of Meiji Shrine; very quiet and beautiful, so you can spend a relaxing time here. I like to see the trees and its beauty around the area. Highly recommended place as an oasis of Tokyo, though the autumn leaves are still not so much seen .

We went early in the morning ( around 7), and it was so peaceful and quiet. It was quite lovely and easier to appreciate the location's spirituality. Within 2 hours, there were a lot of tourists, and it didn't feel the same.

In the heart of bustling Tokyo a green, green spot - we walked around and soaked in the serenity despite plenty of people milling around, enjoying the good weather. The trees were changing color and there were pretty young girls in traditional Kimonos as well! If it's a relaxed stroll you want, this is the place for you!

After a quick walk down Takeshita street we walked to the Meiji park and shrine. Quite a long pleasant stroll. Photographer's delight. There are English explanations along the way to all the historical and cultural notices. We were lucky to witness a few Shinto wedding ceremonies at the beautiful shrine to Meiji the modernisation Emperor of Japan

Nice park that gives you a break from the hectic pace of Tokyo. However, when we visited it was very crowded. I would choose to visit a lesser known shrine if a peaceful experience was what I was looking for. Also, beware the tiger mosquito they are no joke.

This garden was peaceful and calming, but very monochromatic in early October and not particularly striking as a result.

It's a garden/ forest complex with a shrine and dojo located within the Great Tokyo city. Amazingly peaceful and refreshing.
