    This garden and sanctuary is a "green lung" in the heart of Shinjuku. Visit, even in broad daylight!

    It seems that the city is one thing and when you get to parks that there are many in the city is another. They enter as the cone of silence. Respect for nature looks like from another planet.

    Outstanding place in Autumn! I still wonder how beautiful structure they have created in the middle of a city like Tokyo!

    Beautiful place. Lovely during the Koyo season. Easily accessible but very crowded during the peak season.

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.
