Owner description: 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.

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.

Meiji Shrine is located within a tranquil evergreen forest in the heart of Toyko, visited by locals, tourists, and dignitaries. It was dedicated in 1920 and covers 170 acres. Lots of walking. You will past thru several gigantic Torii gates and walls of wine & sake barrels leading towards the shrine. Be sure to stop by the well and wash your hands prior to entering the shrine. We were lucky and witnessed a Japanese wedding procession during this visit. Weddings are held there. Takes approximately two hours to enjoy this tranquil and serene activity. Subway stop is steps away from the entrance.

This place is a serenity in amongst the hustle. If you are looking for peace or a place to centre yourself, or just wanting to admire the local architecture, then this is the place to be. Go early (before 10.30) and enjoy the shrine in its beauty before the crowd.

Had a great time visiting here, an old historic place where weddings still take place, definitely come here and roam around during your stay in Tokyo
