We went to the shrine and gardens first thing to avoid the crowds. What a lovely experience! The gardens are very peaceful and we only saw 6 other visitors there. Luckily we spent time at the well and enjoyed the peaceful environment with the gentle...More

The Meiji shrine is worth a stop, if you have time in Tokyo make sure to pop by to see the giant Tori!

As we are using the Metro for transportation, alight at Yoyogi Station and there are signs for directions. A huge garden to walk around so bring good walking shoes.

Just wanted to say I've been there. So walked around and saw everything in 20 minutes. It's a place of worship so it was quite.

The shrine itself was quite orderly and it was quite a large shrine. The explanation by the guide we had about the procedures and facts about the shrine made the experience a lot more enjoyable. I would say if you should go with a guide...More

Our visit co-incided with an ice carving exhibition along the entrance path and a traditional Japanese wedding procession into the shrine. Remarkable.

Nice bit of Japanese culture, walking distance from Shibuya. We saw ice carvings (winter) and enjoyed the hour or so we spent there.

It's best to go in daylight. We arrived thirty minutes prior to closing so we had to rush through. No fee to enter.

This is one of those places you need to visit, once. I went on a Saturday afternoon, stupidly busy, but I guess that's to be expected. If you go, do so early morning when they open, beat the rush. The park is lovely, really quite...More

A lovely peaceful and serene area for a stroll and meditative walk. Best to visit during the week when it is quieter.

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.

If you get off at Harajuku (Yamanote line), you can do the shopping area of Harajuku, and then afterwards walk through the park to Meiji Jingu

There was no cost for me but it was included in my bus tour. It looks like there is not a cost because it is a shrine but you should bring money as there are some nice things to purchase there like blessings, and poems... More
