Two, large gates frame the entrance to this Shinto shrine that was dedicated to Emperor and Empress Meiji. Completed in 1920, repairs were required after the shrine was damaged during World War II.

Situated right in the heart of the city. Nice place to stop by for relaxing after shopping. A famous shrine is inside so do check it out!

The Shrine was under renovation so, we could not see much of it. On the other hand, the inner garden with irisis was beautiful to visit. Since it was June the flowers were in full bloom.

A friend and I went here to explore an hour before sunset. Very close to the Harajuku subway stop and popular shopping street. The trees made it a cool summer spot. When you get to the shrine, lower your voice as people are praying. Foreigners...More

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.
