Meiji Jingu is a Shinto shrine located in Harajuku, Tokyo. It is one of the most recommended stops for Japan for first-time-travellers because it is literally located right in the middle of a busy and modern suburb. Takeshita street and Harajuku station are some of the most hip spots for young Japanese people and tourists, and only a short 5 minute walk around the corner, is this giant forest welcoming visitors to the spiritual shrine.
Just sharing snapshots from April 2019.
I have no fucking idea what my parents are doing or why they look like the most typical Asian tourists ever LOL I forgot I took this photo of them and came across it while editing the batch 😂😂😂
These unique wooden plaques are called 絵馬 (ema). Japanese people will write down their prayers or/and wishes, and hang them at a Shinto shrine where it is believed the gods and demons receive them. For 500 yen, visitors can hang something special too.
Thanks for scrolling through! When you walk from Shibuya to Harajuku, you have to cross a bridge and this is the view point from that moment. All I remember looking at this is that it was hot and I regretted choosing the walking option LOL Bye
