Quick escape from the crowd. Fresh air, quiet, perfect for an after lunch stroll or to air a bit for few minutes at least before go back to the fast-paced Tokyo vibe.

We went here in early December to photograph and walk down Ginkgo Avenue in Meiji Jingu Gaien Park. The long approach road is lined with double rows of ginkgo trees on both sides of the road. If your timing is right, the conical shaped trees are a glorious golden color. If you are too early, the leaves are green -... More

I must have visited Meijijingu for over 30 times during my living here and these recent visits, but it is fantastic, and I will still religiously visit it every time I come back to Tokyo.

The Park is situated well in Shinjuku and so it very easy to reach. Good place to spend an afternoon besides the quite busy areas of the City

Enjoyed the walk from the train station to the Shrine. The shrine itself is ok, nothing spectacular, but worth a visit. They were setting up for some sort of play so they had a lot of areas roped off.

This was the first shrine and garden we visited. Got a shrine book and stamped up which is well worth doing. Managed to see a wedding going on as well which was a bonus.

A visit to the gardens requires payment but is worth the small entry fee - a lovely quit place to stroll in this over-populated bustling city

A stunning, natural garden in the heart of Tokyo - huge - a good 30 min walk through. Very rustic, natural paths, lovingly tendered iris beds, woodland areas, a lake, and a lovely spring. A zen, peaceful spot - where you can see anything other than trees, plants and nature. Ideal for taking a bento box for lunch - suitable... More

Lovely park and gardens around Meiji. There were some dance events when I was there which somewhat disturbed the peace and quiet but otherwise it was lovely.

A beautiful shaded walk to the temple area - very serene. Witnessed a wedding procession, that was an interesting bonus to our time spent there. This is well worth seeing when you are in the area. Wish we'd gone to the Treasure House as well, but one of our party has a bit of walking trouble so we chose not... More
