Seasonal plants and animals
Please enjoy the nature at Meiji Jingu troughout the year. There are many seasonal plants and animals, so the ones below are only a small selection. Some of them are endangered, and all of them are part of this holy forest. Therefore, please do not take any plants (or parts of them) or animals home with you. Thank you very much.
