Meiji Jingu has chosen ten Waka each from the works of Emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken in order to provide visitors at Meiji Jingu with the divine grace of the Imperial couple in the form of Omikuji. These Omikuji are available in Japanese as well as in English. For example, there is a box with English Omikuji at Gehaiden, right in front of the main shrine building.

Further information about the Waka poetry by Emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken can be found on the pages in the section "About Meiji Jingu" on the pages about "Divine virtues": Waka poetry
