Owner description: Two, large gates frame the entrance to this Shinto shrine that was dedicated to Emperor and Empress Meiji. Completed in 1920, repairs were required after the shrine was damaged during World War II.

The forest area is beautifully planted and has lovely walks through the trees and to the shrine at its centre. Its so peaceful you wouldn't know you were in the centre of the city.

We so loved our visit to this big park and Shinto temple. We managed to witness three weddings when we were there. A very peaceful place.
Shibuya is such a great place as well. Make sure you visit on the weekend if you can.

A large and beautiful shrine which is conveniently located near to the Harajuku train station. It is a little different from Sensoji Temple as you experience peace and tranquility at Meiji Shrine whereas Asakusa is more touristy and hustle bustle. There is quite a distance from the main entrance to the shrine thus it is best to wear shoes that has flat soles and to avoid wearing heels because there are plenty of stones around the pavements. Point to note: for those who intend to pay 100yen and draw lots at the shrine and could not understand japanese language, you can actually request for an english version of the lots. the forecast of the lot will also be given to you in english. Hope it helps!
