Garden Dome, Marshall Island Fisherman Memorial Museum and more
Feb 2017 • Solo
While in Tokyo, make a trip to the Tropical Garden Dome and Marshall Island Fisherman Memorial Museum in Yumenoshima Park. Both are remarkable for their architecture though different in purpose.

The Tropical Garden Dome is operated by the local government and has a very modest entry fee. Year round there are beautiful subtropical flowers and trees in a large glass dome structure that is heated through waste management. The center has a convenient cafeteria looking out to a water feature. Food is good and can be accompanied by a cold brew. There are also revolving special exhibitions and a theater with nature films.

About 200 meters away is an unusually shaped brown building housing a Memorial to the fishermen fishing the Marshall Islands at the time of a nuclear test in that region. The exhibit includes the whole of one of the then contaminated ships and objects from the crew. There is a pictorial history of the aftermath of the disaster and the effects of nuclear contamination on man. Entrance to this very interesting museum is free.

The park also houses a community sports center and track. Building is in process within the park in preparation for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games center for the Archery competition. This area is clearly enclosed and in no way detracts from the visit. Indeed the temporary walls surrounding the development are adorned by 3D photographic art that is in itself an attraction.

It's a nice park, we strolled through on our way to a museum. In May, the colours weren't anything eye catching, but everything looked nice and alive. Well maintained, moved and trimmed as needed.

The whole area around here is a little haven of tranquillity. Not utterly beautiful but nearly there.
