Pay your respects to the deified Emperor Meiji and his wife, Empress Shoken, at Meiji Jingu Shrine, a Shinto shrine surrounded by a forested area crisscrossed with peaceful walking paths. At the temple itself, visitors give offerings, buy amulets and charms, and reflect on and write out their wishes. Walk through the treasure house to see belongings of the emperor and empress, and visit the museum annex next door, which hosts temporary exhibitions. Note that photography is not permitted within the temple’s halls. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Tokyo holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Meiji Jingu Shrine and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

I was lucky enough to spot a traditional wedding taking place on the day I visited, which I'm told is not uncommon. Just made it all the more special for a first-time visitor! Gorgeous place, very peaceful. Had I known it opens super early (sometimes 5am) I would have tried to catch the sunrise! But I reckon it's just as beautiful regardless of the time of day
One of the most popular shrine in Japan. Uplifting, traditional shrine with it’s unique beauty, spacious walkway and pockets of shady areas. Very convenient with nearby Harajuku station. When we visited this tranquil place, we were lucky to have a chance to see a Japanese traditional wedding taking place. Needless to say, Japan is well known for it’s cleanliness and meticulous traits.
