Many people misunderstand Meiji Jingu Shrine with Meiji Jingu Imperial Garden. Both are wonderful sites. As you can see here, most of the pictures fellow tripadvisor members posted are actually the image of the shrine instead of the Imperial Garden. Meiji Jingu Imperial Garden or...More

Its a must if you go to Tokyo. A huge park to walk and breath fresh air. En mi opinión es indispensable. Es un parke grande con mucho para ver y respirar aire puro.

The garden is huge- some part are more touristic and some are nicely hidden. Great way to enjoy the nature. Free admission with multiple entry and exit points. There is also a pony park/farm just outside the exit.

It was a nice relaxing and serene walk around the park. The greeneries were pretty as well. If you are on a tight budget, I think you can pass it off as the walk from the shrine gate to the main shrine itself and their...More

Unfortunately when we were here it was raining. This shrine is big and nice to visit, but when you are her certainly don't forget to visit the park/garden around the shrine. Hopefully you have better weather than we did.

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.
