Meiji Jingu Shrine
Meiji Shrine consecrates the spirits of Emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken. It is home to the solemn inner garden, as well as the outer garden, where the Meiji Memorial Picture Gallery, first-rate sporting facilities, and other buildings can be found. In addition, there is the Meiji Kinenkan, where weddings, ceremonies, and parties are held.
The dense and lush evergreen forest here is a manmade forest that is the result of 100,000 trees shipped in from across the country to commemorate the enshrinement of the grounds.
The rich forest is now 700,000 square meters in size and has become a fond place of respite for locals.
Here you will find Kiyomasa’s Well, said to have been excavated by Kato Kiyomasa himself, as well as iris beds, planted by Emperor Meiji for the empress, among other sights.
