Tokyo Travelogue #5: Meiji Jingu

Yesterday we were so lucky to get guided around the city by a friend of a friend and local Tokyoite who took us to see the temple Meiji Jingu. (If you fancy a breathtaking bird's eye view of the place, then take a look here - unbelievable, no?)

He also walked us through the meticulous cleansing ritual before entering, which you can read about here (entering with a dirty mouth is apparently a faux pas, which I found rather interesting).
