Was lucky enough to see the Irises in bloom this visit. And a Wedding procession. The grace and spaces of some of the gates make for a peaceful stroll even amid crowd.

Great place to visit, especially during the Sakura season in late March - early April. Got the mystical feeling seeing the shrine.

The street and the gardens are very beautiful to stroll through. They are busy, but it's nice to have the greenery in a busy part of this bustling city.

It's amazing that you can walk in a gigantic and beautiful forest garden as such in the city center of Shibuya (near Harajuku)! There is a great souvenir store located by the Cultural Center of Meiji Jingu.

Love the yellow colors of the fall leaves here. The street is full with Gingko Trees and very beautiful however it can get very pack and hard to get good pictures without other people on the background. The street is closed during the peak season...More

We came almost at the right time, As the fall leaves were turning bright yellow. It was a very beautful fight. Great stroll and great temple at the center of it.

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
