“Beautiful Shrine”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

We loved the traditions of the shrine and walking around the whole area. Our daughters loved seeing Japanese ladies in their traditional dresses and we were lucky to see a couple of weddings.

“Majestuous”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

The access is free, you are welcome by a majestuous alley of mature trees, walking under their shadows is quit an experience. We were lucky enough to assist at a Japanese tradionnal ceremony within the main temple courtyard.

“Top Shrine in Tokyo”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

This is a beautiful Shinto shrine complex in a huge green landscape. It's free to enter and is the cheapest place to buy good Shinto luck charms in Tokyo. For a restful break from the busy city, this is the place to go.

“Peace in the big city”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

This rambling space is a beautiful garden and Shinto temple. Walking through the grounds and down the many paths is so peaceful, while listening to birds chirp, seeing huge black butterflies flit from flower to flower, and occasionally catching glimpse of a priest or other religious person. This park does have a souvenir shop and a cafe and a restaurant. It is within easy walking distance of the Park Hyatt and other hotels in the vicinity. (Plus it was lovely to walk past the Tokyo Riding Club on the way to the park and see the horses.)

“A lovely walk”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

The gardens around the Meijijingu are beautiful and it is quite strange walking from the busy station into these quiet serene gardens.
