Japan: Meiji Shrine

It was Tuesday morning. During my business trip to Japan last month, we got a free time before the meeting. We decided to visit the Meiji Shrine, located in Shibuya.

Address: Japan, 〒151-8557 Tokyo, Shibuya, Yoyogikamizonocho, 1−1

Meiji Shrine also know as Meiji Jingu is the Shinto shrine that is dedicated to the deified spirits of Emperor Meiji and his wife, Empress Shōken. We took a JR train, Yamanote Line from Shinagawa Stasion to Yoyogi Station. Following the direction with the help of wifi-hire.com modem to stay connected with the google map. We arrived at the huge Tori gate at the enterance near the forest. It was still in the morning and we met several Indonesian whose traveling with their family. Took some picture while walking into the forest while the leaves dancing through the ground.



Before arriving in the Main Hall, there is a water basin called Temizuya for you to wash your hands and mouth before entering the Shrine.

Omairi / Shrine Visit

As we entered the Main Building, they are just doing the restoration so nothing much to see. There were Ema hanging along the side. But luckily,  we met some the shinshoku, shito priest and tooke some pictures with them.



As the time approaching 12 p.m, my director decided we need to get back to the hotel. We ended our tour and head back to the station. Harajuku station where The Takeshita was just in front of us. Decided to strolled the street while we had enough time. I saw so many dessert shop selling crepes, ice cream and any other sweet tooth. The Rainbow cotton candy stole my interest the most. Too bad I didn’t had a chance to try it as I didn’t know who to share with.
