What to see in Tokyo: Weddings @ Meiji Jingu Shinto Shrine

The Meiji Jingu Shinto Shrine in the Harajuku section of Tokyo is a great place to witness Japanese weddings of various traditions on the weekends.  The surrounding tree filled park is a great place to go if you need a break from the clean but crowded streets of Harajuku.

It is Toyko’s Central Park and can’t be missed.  The other reason to go is to see the famous Harujuku teens showing off there latest fashion creations in front of the Tori Gate.  The weddings are usually going on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.  I wonder if many of the brides getting married used to dress up as goth death-like dolls and hang out with their posse at the entrance?
