The Kyu-Shiba-rikyu garden is just excellent! There is a small entrance fee (150 yen) and it is well worth it. This garden is a photographer's delight! The garden is very accessible via the Yamanote line.

I had time to kill in the area, so I decided to visit this garden. It was a small garden, but for 150 yen (I believe), it was worth a visit. In a middle of a city, this garden provided a relaxing space.

Kind of stumbled upon this garden by chance. A great introduction to Japanese gardens and buildings. Offers a huge lake and tea house. Could easily spend hours here. Former home of the shoguns and imperials in Japan history. Great to see

Took some beautiful pictures of the garden and the bridges, well maintained. It was just perfect to get away from some of the city noise and just enjoy a bit of nature.

Carefully laid out parkland; meticulously tended trees; real feeling of peace, despite being overlooked by railways and tall buildings.

Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi
Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris
wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of
shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a
hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is
very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has
ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find
restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The
neighboring area of Shinbashi is a district of much
