Just one minute away from the busy JR Yamanote Harajuku station you find a big torii gate. It leads you to the beautiful Meiji jingū (Meiji Shrine). It’s a ten-minute walk from the torii gate to reach the shrine. Meiji jingū is dedicated to the Emperor Meiji and Empress Shōkun and was completed in the year of 1920. Around 100 000 trees makes up the Meiji jingū forest. The park is huge, peaceful and very green. The shrine is one of the most visited and popular shrines in Japan and you can very often see traditional Japanese weddings taking place there. I Love all the colorful kimonos you can spot if you go there. How cute are the kids in kimonos?
Have a lovely Friday!
