Meiji Shrine

A striking example of traditional Japanese architecture, this shrine symbolises peace and serenity.

The Meiji Shrine is a Shinto shrine dedicated to the deities of Emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken, and is a beautiful remainder of tradition. Tourists may write their wishes and tie them to the columns like the locals do, and on Sunday mornings, a traditional Shinto wedding ceremony can be witnessed in the temple. Many Japanese festivals can be witnessed at the shrine all year round.
