Meiji Shrine

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.

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?
