What people are saying:

[Scenery] In this 70-hectare park, it is the oldest shrine in the city. It was built to commemorate Emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken of Meiji Jingu. They hope to make it a symbol of imperial power and Japanese race. The protection is divided into two parts: the external part, with gardens and various sports fields, and the internal part. The interior is located in front of the 12-meter-long archway with 1500 pieces of wood carved on it. Here you will find a basic and simple beauty, surrounded by Japanese cypress trees. The reserve has a Mojin style copper roof, and its buildings have green copper roofs. This is an example of the natural integration of the building with the surroundings. [Fun] If you are lucky, you will be able to participate in a traditional Japanese wedding where the bride and groom wear luxurious kimonos.
