    Watch a baseball game in the Tokyo Dome, in time, to explore the Park. Student University near here had wife, cited talking of that time. Could peer Club, juniors and men at that time, "she in a couple exploring when you're good," such as and were were talking about memories. The opportunity Oh if you want to stroll slowly.

    Koishikawa Korakuen Garden is one of Tokyo's oldest and most beautiful gardens. Ideal to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

    An absolutely beautiful garden and worth the visit. Entrance fee is about 300 Yen and it allows you to go into a very very peaceful park. It was extremely well maintained and quite beautiful. I had the pleasure of going during the peak cherry blossom season and it was breathtaking. But I feel that even if I went during non cherry blossom season, I would still be very impressed with the garden.

    One of the best Japanese gardens in Tokyo. Beautiful and well maintained. We visited during momiji season in late November. It was crowded but still we managed to get some amazing photos. I do recommend a visit if you enjoy Japanese gardens.

    It is amazing as a megalopolis like Tokyo still manages to maintain a well functioning balance between city and nature. So many wonderful green spots dot the city and this is one of them. Ponds with bridges, a Tea House...all "a la Japonaise" delight us at every turn of the way. Loved this place. The Sakura bloom there was awesome!

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
