Meiji Jingu Tour

A guided stroll through Tokyo’s most famous Shinto shrine.


Founded in 1920, Meiji Jingu has stood ever since as the Japanese capital’s largest and most significant sanctum in the indigenous Shinto faith.

On this tour of the shrine’s verdant grounds, its prayer halls and its newly constructed museum, delve into the core tenets of Shinto while gaining a new perspective on the religion’s unique place in Japanese society.

Moriyasu Ito, a Shinto priest and head of the international section at Meiji Jingu's Intercultural Research Institute, leads this guided tour that covers everything from Shinto’s humble, prehistoric origins to its complex relationship with Buddhism and other faiths present in modern-day Japan.
