  • One of the best parks I've ever seen. A paradise corner in a mega city.
  • In 1923, a big earthquake hit the Kanto area hard, claiming tens of thousands of lives. But, history tells us that there was another group of victims, some Koreans. They were killed ruthlessly and blindly by Japanese citizens based on wrong rumors. Plz, remember their deaths!
  • Japan Kanto Earthquake and Tokyo Bombing memorial park. Nice and calm park.
  • Great colours in autumn/fall. Lots of supervised preschoolers here. Worth stopping by after visiting the Kokugikan at Ryogoku.
  • This is a place of mourning. It feels more like a war memorial park than a place for kids. The commenters have valid points, but there's more history here than just a play park.

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.
