Finding Something?

Meiji Jingu

Reaching a visitor count of over 30,000,000 in 2014, and set to surpass that number by 2020, Meiji Jingu (明治神宮) is, without a doubt, one of the most visited spots in all of Metropolitan Tokyo.

With its winding pebbled paths, wooden bridges and towering torii gates attracting a steady stream of both Shinto devotees and design enthusiasts daily, traversing its length – especially before the dawn of a new year – can be a bit overwhelming.

The inner temple grounds paint a different story, though. Sitting on one of the covered benches, you’ll find some peace and quiet amidst a crowd gawking at the allure of a foreign culture.

The approach to Meiji Jingu starts a few meters from Harajuku Station on the JR Yamanote Line, or from Meiji-jingumae Station on the Chiyoda and Fukutoshin Subway Lines.
