Meiji Shrine sits next to JR Harajuku Station, near the bustling Takeshita Dori st., young fashionista’s haunt in Tokyo. You wouldn’t believe your eyes that such a tranquil place is adjacent to one of the Tokyo’s busiest town of Harajuku. Step inside the shrine premise, you will feel sacred spirit in the air. As you proceed towards the main shrine, the holy atmosphere increases. After offering prayer at the shrine, other attractions such as Yoyogi Park, Yoyogi Olympic Gymnasium, and Omotesando, Tokyo’s trendiest town, are within walking distance.
