  • Had no idea this thing is to visit the local.  Ryogoku station has a lot of history about the place, I watched them out find yokoamicho Park names from the map, I was near the Ryogoku station I visited place on Sumo and was completely irrelevant. No element of Sumo, learned that the place to mourn the victims of the disaster and the war, tells of the misery. But why so many people have recreational area Park was a place where children can play with without tension please feel free to visit, you want to see. Pagoda in the garden are quite powerful. From monument to pray for peace and mourn the Tokyo air raid victims, the flowers are very beautiful. They became famous as a haunted place where such incident or have in the past.

  • A place of tranquillity amid the urban chaos of Tokyo. It's on the way to the Edo-Tokyo Museum. When I went, they were renovating some parts of the garden. Worth going to, even if it's a quick visit.
