Meiji-jingu - finished in around 1920, this is the shrine dedicated to Emperor Meiji, who is famous for opening up Japan to the west after hundreds of years of self-imposed isolation. Of course, the original was burnt to the ground in World War 2, along with pretty much everything else in Tokyo - this reconstruction dates from 1958.
