Another place we visited was the Meiji Shinto Shrine in Shibuya. The shrine is located within Yoyogi Park. The shrine attracts a lot of tourists on the weekends from what we heard, but even on a Friday there were a lot of people there.
Before you enter the Shrine you have to wash your hands and mouth as a form of cleansing yourself. Then you will bow and walk through the torii on either side. (not the center)
Adam and I were lucky enough to witness a wedding ceremony taking place in the Shrine.
The shrine is beautiful and it has so much architectural details.
There are several ways people go to worship. Some go and make an offering and make wish or give thanks for something they had asked for in the past. Adam and I both made a wish. You walk up to the shrine, give your donation, bow twice, think of your wish, clap twice and bow once more before you leave.
I really had a great time visiting the shrine and I was very happy to witness a wedding, because it was a unique way to experience Japanese culture.
