General Information

Meiji Shrine is a memorial shrine dedicated to Emperor Meiji and his wife Empress Shoken that is situated in Tokyo, Japan. Emperor Meiji was the first emperor of modern Japan, he passed away in 1912 and the shrine was built and opened eight years later in 1920. The shrine was then destroyed during World War Two when it was bombed but was rebuilt shortly after and still stands today as a shrine area which contains the buildings and gardens.

Getting there

If travelling to the shrine by car, there is a car park on site at Meiji. The other option for travelling to the shrine is by using public transport. There are a few train stations in the area but it is best to travel to ‘Yoyogi Station’ which is a five-minute walk away, this is because the station is accessed by multiple lines that travel through most of the city.

Opening Times and Admission

The shrine is open to the public from sunrise till sunset and is free to visit, access to the inner garden at the shrine comes with a small fee to enter.
