JGarden Description:The most famous shrine in the Tokyo area, Meiji Jingu is known for its 100 varieties of irises blooming in mid-June. It rests in the center of a huge, 180 acre forest, known as the Inner Garden. The iris gardens and a tea house are located to the south of the main site. The shrine is located a 5 minute walk from Harajuku Station on the JR Yamanote-sen. 




The leaves of the trees are falling.
In the house one cannot hear anything--
Both nights when showers fall
And nights when showers do not fall.

  Minamoto Yorizane
