This is simply a must in Tokyo and it’s really easy to get to from Harajuku station. It’s a nice escape from the crazy in Tokyo and a great place to get some exercise in.

Although the Meiji emperor was on the throne from 1867-1912, he is a key historical figure for Japan as he encouraged the opening up of the country to external ideas and its rapid modernisation. The shrine was built to honour the emperor and his wife,...More

The uphill road and trees on both sides are impressive. The temple itself is average. Anyway it is not very special.

There is a garden with 500 yen entrance fee. You can safely skip it if you don't have time and want to save money. I don't even mind skipping the whole thing especially if you plan to visit temples in Kyoto.

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.
