Meeting Points

In front of a cafe “Mori no Terrace” located in a big open space where a big wooden entrance gate of the Meiji Shrine (Meiji Jingu) stands. Meiji Shrine can be easily reached from JR Harajuku station after getting out of the Omotesando exit and simply walk toward the forest.)

This cafe is different to the one inside the Meiji Shrine, with very similar name. You will not go through any Shinto gates from JR Harajuku station to get here.
