Meiji Shrine is a must see, even if you don’t want to explore another shrine. Instead, the shrine offers an escape from the insanity that is Tokyo.
Meiji Shrine sits in a middle of a man-made forest that offers you a green oasis escape from the insanity of the hustle and bustle that is Tokyo. The shrine is usually packed with tons of people making their way to and from the shrine, but there is enough space for everyone.
There are plenty of paths that lead to different parts of the shrine area that allow you to find some peace and quiet from all the noise and the concrete city that surrounds you. It is a nice change of pace and something that I recommend if you are staying in Tokyo for your trip and can’t get to one of the parks, it’s a great spot to just relax.
