I have a little country-crush in Japan. (Maybe you can tell.)
The Meiji Shrine is located in Shibuya, Tokyo. A Shinto shrine, the site was dedicated to Emperor Meiji and his wife, the Empress Shoken in 1920. Completed in 1926, the Meiji Shrine was re-built in 1958 after the main building was destroyed during the air raids on Tokyo in WW II.
As you walk through the woods towards the shrine, you will completely forget that you are in the middle of a densely populated city. This gorgeous green space reminds me of a poem I wrote many years ago. It’s called Tree.
What are you dreaming of today? Something green and far away or something close to home?
