You have to past through this beautiful garden to see the Ni-ju bashi 2 tiered bridge and Imperial Palace. The trees are beautifully manicured. We were there during cherry blossom time and there were a few cherry blossom trees.

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

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.

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....More

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...More

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
