Meiji Jingu is the Shinto shrine, hidden in the depths of Yoyogi Park. It was built in 1920 in honour of the great Emperor Meiji and his wife Empress Shoken. The Shrine is built in the typical Japanese style. There is a park around, and its area is covered by an evergreen forest that consists of 120,000 trees of 365 different species, which were donated by people from all parts of Japan. There is a treasure-house behind the temple, where works of art and things that belonged to the imperial couple are collected.
