Meiji Jingu surrounded by artificial forest, boasting the number of first visits in Japan

Meiji Shrine was a shrine that enshrines Emperor Meiji and Empress Shogen Princess, which was founded on November 1, 1920 (1920).
Joban woods that drifts green and thick green are planted forests that planted about 100,000 trees that were donated from the whole country in the Shinto shrine. Hatsumode is also known as a shrine that collects the number of worshipers in Japan the number one in the year.

In the Meiji Shrine Kagura dedicated dedicated Kagura Mai to dedicate the family, we are pursuing family safety, praying for physical safety, praying for excellence, praying for candidates to pass the exam, praying for the company Takashi, business prosperity We pray for prayers and many visitors are visiting every day. In addition, Kiyomasa (Kiyosato noodle), which is said to have been dug by Kiyomasa Kato of the garden, has become popular.

The garden is famous for its beautiful irises blooming in June every year due to the embroidery of Emperor Meiji for the birth of Emperor Akira, but there are still different discoveries in January, and the different nature from season to season It is a place that you can feel.


In shrines and temples, there is a tendency to ask for innocent large diameter trees in addition to things. However, a naughty commitment could already further challenge the critical forest resources. Because it is not in Japan, it is not a time to boast not only the torii but also the main hall and the main hall building with the wood of the large diameter tree which was cut from natural forest abroad.

Since the forests of Japan are saturated, the voices say that it is better to cut down quickly, but it is only young as Japanese cedar and Japanese cypress, about 50 years old. Mature big trees over 100 years, and moreover, the super divisive gods over 200 years of age are decreasing extremely. We should select trees and species considering the forest environment and the amount of resources. There are not too many large Yoshino cedar trees.

Although it was once made of wood and sometimes made of stone, the torii is something a little bigger now is made of reinforced concrete, metal such as iron, made of vinyl chloride.

That is lonely with it. Torii fulfills the role of the barrier that divides the divine region from the common world. I hope that such a torii is made of wood, which is also natural. I think that it is difficult to become a power spot a bit with synthetic resin … ….

I’d like you to make small and medium torii again with wood, and if you absolutely need big ones, you ought to be good for laminated wood.


When I come to Meiji Shrine, I want to get to Kiyomii. Apart from the person who says “You can come anytime”. “I rarely come because I am far away, but if I want to go to Meiji Shrine, I definitely want to go there.”

So I went to Meiji Shrine Gyoen and Kiyomii in the premises of Meiji Shrine. Kiitoi is in the garden.

It was a nice airy place with clean water. Of course Kiyomii is a valuable place, but the entire forest of Meiji Shrine received a feeling like healing space rather than Kiyoshita itself.




It is said that more people visited here from around 2009. It seems that it became popular because the talent took pictures of this place on TV and said that they can receive power when they are on standby for cell phones. Since it is a beautiful well of blue green, it is certainly a healing effect if you are looking at the picture. A place where you can shoot a clean water source in the city center is precious.

It is rare spring water in the city and it is certainly beautiful. Air is also nice. I felt tired after walking around the city of Tokyo by this time, but I feel I became well. It was worth coming. I think that the entire forest of Meiji Shrine is becoming a healing space rather than Kiyoshi Mimi itself. I think that if you take a stroll while feeling nature, you will get that effect.

Water coming out of the well flows as a small river.
