This is a beautiful location to run. It is green and lush. It feels extremely safe, as it is located adjacent to the Imperial Palace. The grounds are very well kept, also ... so you don't need to worry about divers or other stumbling hazards....More

We loved our pre breakfast 5km jog around the Imperial palace. It was crazy that we felt like we almost had the park to ourselves. I can only imagine how beautiful this place must be when the blossoms are out. We found a lovely clean...More

It felt so good to jog along the palace because you get to see lots of historical and famous places such as congress, hotels and park. Loved it!

Had a chance to do this run on a sunny but cold Saturday in December. Was a little disappointed that you don't really go onto the grounds of the palace, rather you are running around the outside edge of the property. Still, it was a...More

If you are a running enthusiast, the Imperial Palace running loop is a must do. Its a 5kms per loop and relatively flat. Most of the runners during the weekends are local Japanese of all ages with many of them doing some kind of timed...More

This takes you along the moat surrounding the Imperial Palace - soothingly green in spring and summer, and richly colorful with the red and yellow foliage in autumn. Even if you're neither a jogger nor a walker, this is a lovely way to do some...More

I woke up ealy and went out a run along the pavement that outlines the Imperial palace. The sun was just coming up and warming up the cold morning. Undaunted, I started on my counter clockwise route of the running course. I run on and...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
