Meiji-jingu

Highly recommended
Enshrined in the Meiji-jingu temple are the venerated and deified souls and spirits of Emperor Meiji and his wife, Empress Shoken. The shrine was built following a public fund-raising campaign and 130,000 trees were donated by the Japanese. Destroyed during the war, an exact replica was rebuilt in 1958. Access is through a majestic gate carved into a centuries-old cypress tree. The lush Gyoen garden is renowned for its collection of irises.
