The entrance to Meiji Shrine South Gate is a three minute walk from Harajuku Station. Exit Harajuku Station, and turn right. Follow the path for about one minute, until your reach a large concrete bridge that crosses the tracks of the Yamanote Line. Cross the bridge, and on your right hand side you will see a torii gate shrouded by trees. This is the entrance to Meiji Shrine. Alternatively, Meiji Shrine South Gate can be reached from Meiji Jingu Mae Station. Take JR Exit 2, leave the elevator, and the entrance to Meiji Shrine will be directly in front of you.

Urban Oasis
Just across the bridge next to Harajuku station, you will see the magnificent Torii gates. Go though this and you will feel like a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The shrine itself is also impressive. Learn from Japanese and give a prayer of good luck! If you are lucky, you can see the traditional Japanese Shinto wedding ceremony here.

For a nice cool walk in the summer
The Meji jingu shrine is located right next to Harajuku and its station. It is a very nice and cooling walk (especially in the summer), because the trees give lots of shade, from the entrance to the actual shrine. During my time in Japan I've visited several time since I wanted to show my friends who were visiting as well and the place just never bores me. I like it because it is right in the city and a beautiful symbol of Tokyo to many visitors.

A small bit of paradise
I really love Meiji Shrine and I feel I can always go there every time I am close by, even tho I have been there so many times before. Especially during summer is a breath of fresh air whenever you enter through the main gate, and walk the path filled with beautiful nature. The shrine architecture is also very beautiful and it always manages to make me fell i came back in time! I feel also very luck whenever I can see a traditional Japanese groom and bride passing by the temple! I always look forward to Meiji's emperor poetry bits that you can get there!

Tranquility and raucousness sit side by side
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.

A place to relax in a busy city
After being surrounded by buildings all day, it is a delightful break to walk from Harajuku station to the Meiji jingu shrine. Since many other people be on their way to the shrine, you can easily follow them. Sometimes you are lucky and see a traditional wedding walking inside the shrine, which is an amazing experience of Japanese culture.

Ninja Gaiden
If you ever played that game then this place will feel just like it. This shrine is very big filled with trees, giant crows, people having a traditional Japanese style wedding, and many ways to clean your sins. They have a pretty good food place that serves some ice cream. Filled with tourist shops and nature this place can be a little overwhelming in a good way, the bigger the better. Just don't get lost....Or eaten by a giant crow

A relaxing place for an afternoon stroll
Meiji Shrine is a great place for a stroll. The path is shrouded by trees and is incredibly relaxing. The sheer size of the torii gates are impressive, and the shrine itself often hosts many events all year round. The are numerous little distractions within the shrine grounds, ponds, gardens, and even a treasure museum.
