As the season of Sakura blossoms has stared, I've been visiting various places to get the best image of Sakura this year. And, I'm now in Meiji Jingu Shrine, one of the biggest shrines in Japan with more than 3 million visitors during new year's days.
You might doubt if Meiji Jingu Shrine has Sakura trees because of your image of this shrine. Most people imagine a vast gravel path with huge green trees on the both sides. And most people go to Yoyogi Park next to this shrine to enjoy Sakura, indeed.
And you might also have an image of big god trees in front of the main hall. But if you go north from here, you will find an open space with lots of...
Sakura has not bloomed yet, eh? It'll take another one week for beautiful Sakura blossoms to appear.
I guess many people don't know this area because we can't find this place by googling "Meiji Jingu Shrine Sakura", which resulted in bunch of search records of the Outer Garden of Meiji Jingu Shrine, not Meiji Jingu Shrine itself.
I will definitely visit here again to enjoy Sakura blossoms in this holy spot soon!
