We took the subway over to the Meiji Jingu Shrine. This is a Shinto shrine. The two major religions in Japan are Shinto and Buddhist. This is the torii (gate) outside indicating a sacred Shinto structure. Constructed of Japanese cypress, this is one of the largest wooden torii in Japan, at 12m high and 9m post-to-post. That's Teri standing under the arch.
