Although it wasn't completed until 1920, the Meiji Jingu Shrine has become one of the most popular places to visit in the Japanese capital. Both the shrine and the adjacent Yoyogi Park are right next to the busy Harajuku Train Station. The approximately 100,000 trees that make up Meiji Jingu Forest were planted during the construction of the shrine and donated from regions across the country.
