  • Small gem pretty close to Skytree making it a great place to relax from the busy life. The park is beautifully crafted and has a very calming atmosphere.
  • Great little park not far from Tokyo Skytree. We grabbed some lunch from the nearby convenience store, and had a beautiful lunch among the blooming sakura. This was our frist view of the blooming Sakura, and found this park to be way better for getting nice close photos much better than Ueno Park, or some of the more populated parks. A very nice walk around.
  • Looks old but it's clean as always. A good view of Tokyo Sktree tower from here, too.
  • Nice park, with a very good view to Skytree. Not too busy, one can relax here.
  • Peaceful and a quiet park. Unlike Ueno this is the place to go if you want to relax and think about stuff. There's a ton of doves and some crows. A temple and also a small pond with turtles and fishes

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.
