Meiji Jingu

Meiji Jingu


This beautiful Shrine is located immediately next to Harajuku Station, a bustling and mind numbingly busy spot.



I was quickly overwhelmed by the plethora of school kids and tourists pouring in and out of Takeshita Street. Looking up and back towards the station, I saw giant green trees butting up against the railroad wall. I quickly sought refuge and walked a hundred or so feet down and around the station. Immediately I’m facing a huge 50-foot Torii gate with a wide road running through it. The road was lined with these big, beautiful trees towering at least 100 feet tall. The trees on either side grew as if fighting for sunlight, creating a canopy that almost enclosed you. As I walked down the road looking up the entire time, I realized there was silence.  It didn’t make any sense knowing that hundreds (if not thousands) of people were a mere block away. I turned around facing the way I had come and stood silent. The moment was so serene and still. I raised my camera, adjusted some settings and clicked.
