Meiji Jingu Shrine is one of the most respected Shinto shrines in Japan. It is dedicated to the divine souls of Emperor Meiji (1852- 1912) and his consort Empress Shoken. After their demise, people wished to commemorate their virtues and to venerate them forever. So people at that time donated 100,000 trees from all over Japan and from overseas, and they worked voluntarily to create this forest of total about 700,000m2 (inner precinct). Thus, thanks to the sincere heart of the people, this shrine was established on November 1, 1920.
Near the sacred calm Meiji Jingu Shrine, Omotesando, which means the front path to a shrine, and Harajyuku area are there, where stylish and cutting-edge items are readily available.
