Meiji Shrine is one of the biggest and most beautiful shinto temples in Tokyo. It is located in the city center, next to Yoyogi Park, so visiting both places during the same day is a good idea. The temple is surrounded by a forest, a great place for walking slowly by its path ^^.
Huge wooden torii gate! Going into this gate means that we are leaving the ground world and going into the sacred world.
This is the main area of the temple, where you can find its buildings.
Visitors at Meiji Shrine.
It is always beautiful to look at the wish cards that visitors leave at the temple. How many languages can you recognize on these cards?
Vertical writing system.
This card was probably written by a Japanese kid.
Spanish written card! ^^
Next, some pics of kids and adults wearing Japanese traditional costumes.
Panda bag. Cute ^^.
Leaving the temple.
Outside the temple there are some sake barrels (Japanese alcoholic drink), donated to the temple.
I hope you enjoyed this post ^^.
