A serene setting in midst of a busy city. Once entered you find fresh air and calmness. The mighty arches and gates are the tallest in Japan. This historic place is often used for traditional wedding ceremony. A nice place to visit just off the subway station!

Nice walk up to the shrine with huge sake and wine barrels lining the path.
Also it’s very shady and cooling in the hot sun
It was very busy when we were there with many people and children in kimonos. There were also more than 10 weddings that day and we saw a bridal procession
We couldn’t go inside as only the people needing priestly services were allowed in.
There’s a water purification area just before the shrine.
Nice place to have a stroll and learn about the history of that Edo era

Go back in time in this peaceful area that feels like part park and shrine.. it’s really huge area a great place to slow things down a little and still see history. Check out the old wine barrels that at first glance look like huge tiles. Easy to get there from subway (get that JR pass) Harajuku! After you are done there is plenty places to eat very near!

Very calm and scenic place.
It’s so beautiful and calm place in the middle of the city chaos. I want to go hear again and again

I toured during a free day during a business trip. The temple is surrounded by a large wooded area with paths. The walk in is very peaceful. The temple is lovely and you can buy mementoes and a remembrance plaque to write on and hang.

The place is inside a huge park not too far from the crazy and busy streets of Tokyo.
The complex of buildings are very nice maintain and the main building was under renovation. Lots of people, but still very quiet. Also you can visit the garden and in the way to the Shrine has a coffee shop and gift store. Very nice stuff.

Lovely forest and gardens around the shrine. Weddings were under way when my wife and I were there, and added to the experience.

Beautiful gardens, with close proximity to the hustle and bustle but still quiet and serene despite the hoards of visitors. It is quite a walk to the main shrine so wear comfortable shoes. All the paths although very wide are gravel so is a little hard going for strollers & wheelchairs. You will feel like you are in the wilderness but there is a restaurant and modern immunities. The TORI gates are magnificent and huge pictures do not do them justice . It’s free to enter.

At Meiji Jingu Shrine you can try omikuji (fortune stick) and writing your wish on ema and hanging it. If you can, come on Saturday evening. You might watch Japanese traditional wedding at the shrine. I was so lucky to be able to watch 3 pairs of bride and groom getting married there.

Quite a bit of walking around and not worthwhile to pay to enter the garden as there's really nothing much to see at all. The Shrine wise is more for the religious and while there the divine spirits were enshrined because of renovation. Nothing much in particular except it is a long distance to walk the whole place
