    Nice relaxing place for a quick lunch on a sunny day and also nice for hanami. The cherry blossoms are a little sparse in this park but there's a nice temple next to it.

    Great park for a scenic skyscraper walk during the day and a leasury night stroll after dinner. There are many benches and seating areas around the park for a quiet sit-down with a beer or a snack.

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.
