    Empty decorated Sake kegs

    Sake kegs near the entrance of the Meiji Jingu Shrine. They are empty Sake kegs which are decorated by the people who have donated them to the shrine.

    If you are in Harajuku don't forget to stop by at Meiji Jingu. The walk from the main gate to the shrine is bit far but total worth it. You feel like walking through time-back to Edo.

    Meji Shrine

    Meji is the largest and most popular of the Tokyo shrines. It is particularly popular as a wedding spot. They also have folk dance presentations here that shouldn't be missed.

    Japanese Wedding Parade

    by tangymp Written Jul 12, 2004

    It's too bad for me to think that this was a performance inside meijijingu until I discovered it is a real Japanese Wedding Ceremony.

    It's real! Not performance!

    A Japanese Wedding ceremony was going on when we visited Meiji-jingu Shrine. The poor couple became the backdrop of photo taking for foreign travellers :-(

    This is a beautiful, huge shrine in Tokyo. Originally built in 1920, it was destroyed in WWII and rebuilt in 1958.

    I was lucky in that at the time of my visit, it was the week of Shichi-go-san Festival so the shrine was swarming with little kids with their best kimonos on.
