Meiji-jingumae Station (明治神宮前駅 Meiji-Jingūmae-eki?, lit. "In front of Meiji Shrine") is a subway station located in Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan. It is a part of the Tokyo Metro subway network, and is served by the Chiyoda Line and the Fukutoshin Line.

Harajuku Station on the Yamanote Line is immediately adjacent to Meiji-jingumae Station and is marked as an interchange on most route maps. Due to this proximity and to encourage use of the station by visitors, Tokyo Metro changed station signboards to read "Meiji-jingumae 'Harajuku' Station" (明治神宮前〈原宿〉駅?) on 6 March 2010.[1]
