IMG_6428Meiji Shrine or Meiji Jingu in Japanese is located in Shibuya Tokyo. It’s actually just around the corner from the JR Harajuku station. It’s a shrine dedicated to deified spirits of Emperor Meiji and his wife. It’s probably the only shrine we went to in Tokyo since we went to a lot in Kyoto.
