There is a garden called Meiji Jingu Gyoen in the precinct of the Meiji Jingu shrine. By contrast to the place where the prayer hall stands, the garden is calm. This garden is not so famous and not so many worshipers visit here.
An iris garden is located behind. It is said that the Emperor Meiji who was enshrined in this Shinto shrine planted irises here for the Empress Shoken. Unfortunately, it was out of water in the iris garden and no irises were seen at the time of visiting.
A path stretched along the garden. Stopping on the edge of the garden, I watched the lonely garden at leisure. I could see three persons walking together at the end of the path. And a wooden hut was seen on the other side of them.
