Published on 02.26.2016 The Meiji Shrine is a good spot to those who don’t have the wealth of time to visit places around Japan. Located near the center of Tokyo, this shrine is very accessible. Tourists like going here especially because they are amazed with the combination of the old and the new. You may be surprised how this place has plenty of greenery yet it’s amidst tall skyscrapers and buildings. To get there, take the train and get off Harajuku Station. Another option is taking the subway and getting off at Omotesando. It takes a five-minute walk from the station.

The Meiji Shrine was built in memory of deified Japanese emperors. So upon entering the place, observe strict rules so as to show respect to the sacredness of the place. A few things to remember: bow before entering, avoid walking in the center of the tori (that is, the entrance gate) for it is the path for gods. Wash your hands and mouth upon entering the temple. When offering prayers, remember to throw your money offerings first, bow twice, clap your hands twice, offer your appreciation and your prayer, then finish with a final bow. You may also get oracles where messages from gods are written.
If you want to have a taste of old and religious Japan, come and pay a visit to the Meiji Shrine.
