You approach the Meiji shrine, which is dedicated to the Emperor Meiji and his wife, through a cool wood and surprisingly come upon barrels of sake and wine before the huge Tori Gate made from cedar that distinguish the entrance. It is a calm and...More

Relaxing walk through the park to get to the temple. Walked from the Yoyogi station but Harajuku station was closer. Peaceful and well kept temple. Some renovation work was ongoing but still good to visit before heading to the Harajuku area, especially don’t miss the...More

We visited early, around 7am, and the shrine was fairly empty. I highly recommend being early! We were early for the iris garden which opens at 8am in June, but waited and it was worth it! We stayed in Shinjuku near the station and it...More

The shrine was located a bit of a walk from the entrance nearest to the Harajuku subway station. However, it was an enjoyable walk as we passed through one of the largest forested areas in Tokyo enjoying the quiet and greenery. We passed under a...More

I visited the park and the Shrine on my first day. It's a good counterbalance to the nearby Shinjuku and Shibuya area. I visited the park walking from Shinjuku to Shibuya. The park has beautiful big lanes with big trees. In the middle of the...More

This is a favorite spot in Tokyo, easy to reach by train. Big green park with historical value, worth visiting as a break from busy Tokyo buzz. The little Iris garden (just inside gate, separate tickets) is beautiful.

Best to get in early as the crowds can get large, however, we visited in April and crowds were manageable. Kids loved it too!

Good to those who would like to find a serene spot amid bustling city traveling. The shrine compound is relatively big.

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.
