  • From the skyscrapers of the West and looks green clumps. But small compared to the Shinjuku Gyoen Park, Meiji Jingu Shrine and Yoyogi Park and Meiji Jingu outer gardens, Togu or right foot so its presence; I think the kids are playing but not specifically what is in it, so good. Oita walking from the train station, so surely not normal people.

  • This is a pleasant little corner to recuperate it. The fresh air, leisurely pace the locals go about with hardly any tourists. It's great joy seeing some of the happy dogs walking in the park. This is a hidden gem especially for those who have just visited the Tokyo metropolitan government towers. This place offers views from the ground up that is unblocked with decorative greenery to add to the photos. It also offers great views to nearby skyscrapers. The only downside is that the landscaping is not comparable to the other Parks in the city. But it doesn't cost anything either to enter. Put this in you itinerary if you can spare the extra 30-45 minutes here before heading off elsewhere.
  • Fine place to relax before/after enjoying the Tokyo metropolitan government building. Toilet and water facilities available. Shrine nearby.
  • Good park lot of space for childrens to play. Huge water area during summer
  • I went there to do yoga. Relaxing atmosphere and very calm. Perfect for the day.
  • A peaceful green oasis in the middle of the towering cityscape of downtown Shinjuku. A good spot for a walk or a picnic or just to relax and read a book.

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.
