Hey guys,
yesterday I went to Meiji Jingu, next to Harajuku's station. 
As far as I remember, it costs around ¥500 – ¥600 to go to Meiji Jingu inner garden.  It is a great place to go to if you want to relax and take your time. 

After that I went to the shrine (which is free). Before getting inside of the shrine you should follow these steps. 

  1. take a water scoop on your right hand
  2. scoop water and wash left hand
  3. switch scoop on left hand, and wash right hand.
  4. switch scoop back on right hand and pour water on left hand, then wash your mouth with your hands.

To pray, you need to : 

  1. throw a coin in the offertory box
  2. bow twice
  3. make a wish
  4. clap your hands twice
  5. bow one more time

The best would be coming there during the week, so you don't have too many people.
