An amazing oasis of trees in the middle of the urban maze of bustling buildings and hurtling humans. A walk through this park will guarantee a sombering and calming experience. I would easily recommend starting at the northern entrance and work your way south. Along the way stop at the beautiful Meiji Shrine and be careful to look out for... More

The park around the temples is nice to walk around in for a while, but the temples are not that special though.

If you are planning to visit Meiji Shrine on the weekends, Don't miss out on watching the numerous wedding procession that take place on this premise. For a foreigner, it's a nice cultural experience to see how typical Japanese weddings are conducted. The grounds are well kept, serene, and pleasant.

Great park to have a walk around. Plenty of green, japanese style architecture and garden. It's also close to Harajuku so after walking around Meiji you can go shopping around the Harajuku area. The garden is quite big, and there are signs for you to get to know more about the history. Definitely worth a visit, especially for first timer,... More

The area is big and covered with big trees. It is a good place for relaxing in Tokyo. You can learn also about Meiji era at the shrine. If you are lucky, you might witness a traditional Japanese wedding ceremony there.

I loved the nature there. Even though it was in the middle of the city, it was quiet and peaceful. The air was clean and cool.

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.
