Meiji Shrine alias Meiji Jingu is a good pit stop for all those visitors traveling into the big city of Tokyo in Japan. Meiji Jingu in Shinto shrine was built 90 years ago. This place was created thanks to hundred thousands of volunteers and thanks to donation of 100,000 trees all over the Japan and from overseas. The shrine was dedicated to the Emperor Meiji and the Empress Shoken in 1920, destroyed in World War Two and rebuilt back again. This is a spiritual and peaceful place for those seeking relaxation thanks to the big forested area in the building jungle of the Tokyo city.
