Visiting Japan, you will notice a large variety of Shinto shrines. They are classified according to their Shinto gods (kami) and, in some cases, the type of shrine ca be identified directly by the name. Ths is the case for Jingu, shrines with a deep relationship with the Imperial House of Japan or shrines enshrining an Emperor.
The best known Jingu shrine is the Meiji Jingu from Shibuya, Tokyo, dedicated to the divine spirit of Emperor Meiji and his consort Empress Shoken. Established on November 1, 1920, Meiji Jingu is one of the most important shrines from Tokyo, a must see for a culture-interested traveler. In this photo you can see the Naihaiden (Inner Shrine Hall), a building rebuilt in 1958 with money donated by the public.
