Located in Shibuya, Tokyo, Meiji Shrine is a Shinto shrine dedicated to the spirits of Emperor Meiji and his wife, Empress Shoken. Shinto is Japan's original religion from ancient times, and it is still a significant part of Japanese culture today. Shinto is unlike other religions, with no founder or holy book, but it values harmony and strong virtues. An important divinity is Kami (divine spirit), and there can be an unlimited number of Kami. The Japanese have dedicated many shrines to Kami, and it has ruled their lives, religion, and myths for many years. Meiju Shrine is a wonderful glimpse into the Shinto lifestyle. It combines deeply rooted traditional with modern and new. It has events that anyone can join, such as its New Years Prayers, and it is in close proximity to the city's shopping centers of Harajuku and Shibuya.
