When you visit Tokyo, this is a must for its cultural significance to the Japanese. It's a nice walk to the shrine itself. Centrally located and easy to find.

We had a nice visit to the shrine and witnessed a few in kimono attire paying their respects. Construction in a few areas. Beautiful shrine. Get a few souvenirs. Walk to Harajuku after.

MySon and partner were married in a traditional Shinto Wedding was a great spiritual experience for the couple and family members. The shrine is where the place of the Gods the Temple next door is the place of Buddha . The priest was very welcoming and the whole process was very spiritual. For those visiting they can only drop an... More

One of symbols of Tokyo, Japanese style facilities, a place for prayers, weddings and other ceremonies. Getting there - though the park - is a pleasure. There are many other interesting things to see in that area, such as wine barrels or sake containers.

A beautiful place where you can really appreciate things slowing down, especially with a stroll through the park. Even saw a traditional wedding ceremony taking place. Highly recommended!

You enter the Shrine walking through a park. A visit to this shrine provides a cultural insight into the Shinto tradition. Pictures can be taken everywhere except at the main altar. You can also buy a piece of wood and write your prayers/wishes that will be offered in the temple.

The energy of the place is wonderful, and the Shinto prayers in the morning were very peaceful. I recommend the tour of the garden, especially the South Pond. One of the most magical places I have ever visited. One needs to be silent to feel and appreciate the place.

Set in a beautiful park that is also worth a look, Meiji Jingu Shrine is enormous yet also accommodating. The highlight for me was the emporers gardens. Despite a small cover fee to enter, the walks were stunning, especially during an autumn time of year. An old Japanese man even whistled to a bird to land on my hand. The... More

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighbourhood Profile
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. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
