Hatsumode: First Prayer of the Year

Things to do, Walks and tours Free
Meiji Shrine | Time Out Tokyo

Expect big crowds at Tokyo’s shrines for the first prayer, as well as food and drink stalls to keep you entertained. The atmosphere is lively, and many shrines have traditional performances such as Shishimai, a lion dance for good luck. Meiji is the biggest, but pretty much every shrine will be open and bustling on New Year.
