Meiji Jingu Museum


The Meiji Jingu Museum is opened this October to mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of Meiji Jingu in 2020. It was designed by architect Kuma Kengo, who also designed Tokyo’s New National Stadium. Wood is an important feature of Kuma’s designs, and this museum is no exception. It is located inside the forest, adjacent to the Shinkyo bridge and just off the Minami sando approach to the main shrine.
The museum displays articles used by or associated with Emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken in 3,200 square meter of display space spread over two floors.
The museum holds exhibitions that aim to deepen understanding of Meiji Jingu and Japanese culture.
