Have a picnic

The Imperial gardens were closed due to a holiday but I had my picnic here in the area. You can see the palace in the distance and Nijubashi bridge.

If you want to see the Imperial Palace, Kokyo Gaien is on its way. Hire a bike if you can to explore it.

Lots of pine trees are planted in a center of garden. These are Edo era symbol. Scyscrapers are found over there. Those are current symbol. The contrast is so impressed. This is the best place to go on a picnic for lunch on day off. You must try.

A sheer joy to stroll around this lovely presented garden of 100 hectares or so. Originally part of the Imperial Palace grounds next door they were opened to the public in 1949. It is a delight to walk the pathways and look across the wide expanse of grass and view the hundreds of pine trees that have all been manicured... More

A must see if traveling to Japan. We took the bullet train which allowed us to see much of the countryside. An experience we will never forget!

On 3rd April my Japanese friends and I started at Tokyo Central Station and walked through this vast area from Wadakuramon Gate to Nijuubashi Bridge; and then to Kusunukiko Rest House right opposite of the bronze statute of Kusunukiko. It was a very windy day. This vast area has many ornamental pine trees donated by many people all over Japan.... More

What an incredible visual experience. The colors of the cherry blossoms hanging in the trees, falling like snow, covering the ground in a blanket of pink...stunning

Neighborhood Profile
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 with anyone looking for a night out.
