Meiji Shrine lies in the heart of Tokyo. Like the park that it is adjacent to, it is very busy and therefore normally wouldn't make the cut for a place for the urban meditator to find a corner of quiet. However, there is an Inner Garden, Meiji Jingo, that is worth the few dollars it costs to enter. There you will find many benches with sublime views and a lush natural setting. yet it lies only a few steps from one of Tokyo's busiest central neighborhoods!
