  • This is a pretty street - recommend not to miss because its one of the famous places you will remember.  more »
  • This street was absolutly amazing in December. Unreal for a photoshoot or just to wander. Really really pretty, I would recommend visiting.  more »
  • The silver apricot of green oil in early summer, it is difficult to imagine the beautiful scenery of the autumn leaves, the pedestrian walk in the shade under the two trees is very comfortable, the fixed time will be the actual Walker day traffic control, you can stand in the road to take photos!

  • Honestly? this boulevard of trees is a bit overrated. I regret wasting 2 hours trying to get there, to enjoy a 20 minute session of selfies with the rest of the world around me. Yes, it looks nice, but I wouldn't make a special trip out of it, there are better gardens and parks around.
  • A rather overrated tourists spot. I have seen quite a number of shrines in Japan and this is the most underwhelming one. Basically there is not much to see and this place does not give you a feel of a tradition Japanese shrine.
  • Wonderful sight of yellow Ginkgo in autumn 2017/11/29
  • Lovely place in during autumn!!!!
  • Outstanding place in Autumn! I still wonder how beautiful structure they have created in the middle of a city like Tokyo!

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.
