Meiji Jingu

Meiji Jingu, Shibuya, Tokyo

Photo_MeijiJinguIn contrast to the lively Sensoji Temple in Asakusa, Meiji Jingu (明治神宮) has an air of tranquility. Once you have passed through the large wooden Torii (鳥居, gate) and are inside the grounds, it is easy to forget about the bustling city outside. For visitors lucky to be there in June, visit the gardens and see the stunning irises in bloom.

1 min. from Harajuku or Meiji-Jingumae Sta.
