Sake Barrel in Meiji Shrine

Many sake barrels are piled up along the south approach to Meiji Jingu. The number is 216. Of course, it is one of the leading number of dedications among shrines nationwide. You can see many foreign tourists stopping in front of the sake barrels, whether they are interested in the powerfully written letters and Japanese-style patterns.

Meiji Shrine turned 100 years old in 2020.

Most of the trees planted at Meiji shrine were donated trees. It is said that about 100,000 trees were donated not only from Japan but also from Sakhalin and Taiwan. In addition to young trees, there were also large trees that were the pride of the village, and railroads were used for transportation. A siding line was laid from Harajuku Station to the precincts, and railway and steamship companies at the time offered a 50% discount on the fare for donating trees. A total of 110,000 youth volunteers were involved in the tree planting work.
