Meiji park is a good place to relax and get away from the crowds, roads, cars, and hot sun. Many of the walkways are covered by tall trees, and most likely there will be a bit of a breeze to cool you down.

This is a beautiful Shinto Shrine. We got to see a traditional wedding ceremony here! Such a peaceful place, a contrast to the crowded streets in Harajuku. This is a must see!

Beautiful spot for a stroll. Quiet, serene, absolutely perfect. Very clean, and there are clearly marked signs in English.

I was there on New Year's Day 2017, felt like having a brand new start in 2017 since it was a bit rough in 2016. Have a Happy New Year.

Really crowded but worth it. Beautiful scenery and atmosphere. Worth going to. Also the entrance close to harajuku station but anticipate a long walk for those who don't like walking.

This temple is easy to reach, since the location is in the town and near Harajuku area. We need to walk to get to the temple maybe around 500m. The temple is big and still in a good condition. Must visit temple when visiting Tokyo

A lovely walk in the park and nice visit of the Meji Jingu Shrine was a great break from the city. Check the opening hours as when it's time to close it's time to close. The colors at the end of the afternoon were beautiful.

We visited the shrine on New Years Day with a few hundred thousand of our closest friends, Even with all the people it was still a peaceful oasis in the middle of a bustling neighborhood.

This Shrine is located in the Yoyogi park. It's a very popular place among locals who go for praying. If you have the chance you can even see a Shinto weddding there.

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.
