The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.

Beautiful! Hard to Believe you are in the middle of Tokyo
Jul 2021
I visited the Imperial Garden after visiting the Shrine. There was an entrance fee to the garden. I feel it was worth it, but it's definitely not the best garden I've been to. There are nice trails around the garden and interesting plants. There were many trees that were wrapped up, I assume because some sort of insect? I did see a snake near the pond. I believe it's a rat snake so no danger. Who knew you would see wildlife in Tokyo. The trails are well marked and maintained. It was nice just to stroll through the garden enjoying the nature.

A slice of heaven in a big city
Aug 2019
This garden is definitely worth visiting. The trails offer a nice way to meander around without getting lost or missing out on anything the garden has to offer. There is a lovely pond that you can walk near and see huge koi swimming around. There are m any beautiful plant species to enjoy. The shade is a great relief during the summer and there are several areas to sit and rest.

This is a very special place for the Japanese. The surrounding forrest, gardens and buildings are very lovely. Lots of English signage which is an improvement since last time I was here many years ago.

This is one of the most visited shrines by the Japanese people themselvesa and well worth a visit to Harajuku.

Don’t bother with the gardens
Nov 2019 • Solo
The shrine itself is worth a look, but don’t bother with the gardens. Entrance fee was 500 yen and what a disappointment they were! Most all the trails were blocked off due to construction.
Any solitude that might have remained, was prevented by the man using a leaf blower on the one main trail available to walk on.

Impressed !
Oct 2019 • Family
Impressed by the beauty and serenity around the shrine. Already at the main entrance I was overwhelmed of the beauty and natural emission of the immense "torii".It takes a rather long - but beautiful - walk to get to the shrine himself, but it is really worth it.
