We had a quite short visit to this garden because it was raining a lot. We had mancha tea and japanese sweets in the tea house. That was nice, especially when we got the normal table instead of floor seats.

Typcai Japan! Peaceful sorroundings yet with some dignity. Get into the end part and listen the air, you will find it. 典型的な日本の静寂と平和をたたえ、かつ威厳のある庭園。奥へ進み、耳を澄ませてみよう、きっと実感できる。

Amazing garden to visit, either with a tour or on your own. A lot to see and walk around. The iris section is breathtaking. A must go to.

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
