Meiji-jingu Shrine

Meiji Jingu, founded in 1920, celebrates the lives of Emperor Meiji and his wife Empress Shoken. The shrine is surrounded with over 100,000 trees, all planted by hand. Every year, this shrine outshines others with the most number of visitors on New Year’s Day (the tradition of hatsu-mode). Meiji-jingu’s iris garden is especially a spectacle, and is open every May and June.
