Tokyo's Great Shrine

Meiji Jingu, Ise Jingu, and Atsuta Jingu are the three great Shinto shrines of Japan. Meiji Jingu is located in central Tokyo northwest of Harajuku station. It was built in 1920 in honor of Emperor Meiji, who was largely responsible for Japan's transition into a modern industrial nation. The shrine sits on 172 acres of land and is surrounded by about 170,000 trees. In the fall the shrine's numerous ginkgo trees turn bright yellow and on New Year's Eve many Japanese pray for the upcoming year at Meiji Jingu.
