Meiji Shrine is one of the most popular and largest Shinto shrines in Tokyo.
The shrine, an oasis in the busy towns like Harajuku is simply refreshing and amazing.
There are some gigantic shrine torii gates at the entrances of the site and in front of the shrine’s main hall. You can enjoy walking in rich nature and historical and powerful atmosphere.
Takeshita Street is a busy pedestrian shopping street located next to Harajuku Station.
Street is a bit narrow and extremely busy at times, but worth checking out at least once during your trip. Try street snack is one of fun part of Takeshita street. Famous Japanese Crepe to colorful cotton candy etc..
Go for whichever one catches your eyes and honest to your stomach.
