This contemporary park designed around water and fountains is right across the street from the entry point for the East Gardens of the Imperial Palace. It doesn't see heavy tourist traffic, which makes it a great place to find a relaxing quiet moment whether you've...More

The modern construction of spraying fountains, running water installations, modern art were built on the site of the former Edo Castle. The modern juxtaposed to and incorporated into the ancient was noticeable even to me. I was struck by the absence of people on a...More

Located between Tokyo Station and Imperial Palace. Some water is there, but not allowed to step in. When I was there, no fountain was working. To me, this is just an open area. Got a bit surprised seeing this place is listed here.

The fountain park is very close to the Imperial Palace and Gardens. The fountains continuously change their water pattern, so it will keep your attention for awhile. Plus, there is lots of space to explore and take pictures.

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
