This is a serious place for many Japanese. Built in 1959 it commemorates those that died in war. Some Japanese question why foreigners visit and I was asked the reason for my visit. Show respect when there.

The National Cemetery honors the "Unknown Soldier". There is not much to see except many plaques narrating historical views. Unless you can read Japanese, you may want to skip the National Cemetery.

the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in
Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a
photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old
Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this
day, and there are long-standing restaurants with
geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
