Meiji Shrine – 明治神宮 | japan information
Located in between the busy #Shinjuku and #Shibuya, just beyond the woods encircling it, stands Meiji Shrine (明治神宮), the shrine dedicated to the late #Emperor Meiji and #Empress Shoken.
Just a few minutes’ walk from the nearby Harajuku Station, the shrine feels like a completely different world. We hope that you should come and feel this atmosphere. Away from the noise of the city, Meiji Shrine is a perfect choice to taste Japan’s culture while escaping from the hectic daily life of #Tokyo.
The shrine is one of the most famous shrines in the country, Japan with millions coming in for the new year’s prayers. Visitors can simply stroll around the large shrine complex, purchase amulet and charms, or write their wishes on the votive tablet (Ema).
