Japanese have nice tastes in general and this extends to the cemetery. Take a stroll (on a hot day by preference) in the cemetery to look at the graves and the beautifully taken care of trees. Free.

Once I discovered this cemetery I knew I had to go visit, it's surprisingly large and well kept, a very peaceful place to wander slowly amongst the graves

This cemetery is both peaceful and well laid out, it's easy to stroll in and the monuments are very artistic and interesting. If you time it right and the cherry blossoms are in bloom it much be amazing.

If you're a westerner, this is interesting in that it looks so different than a typical European/American cemetery (though there is one section for foreigners). After a time you forget you're in a busy city. Worth seeing if you're in the area, but, unless you have a compelling interest, probablynot worth going out of one's way for. (I was lucky... More

On the way to Nippori shopping street, we exited the train station the opposite direction to loop our way through, well worth it. Esp. during cherry blossom time.

This place is the public cemetery park of Minato-ku Tokyo. A lot of famous people were buried to tombs at the park. Politicians, nobles, business founders, authors, war criminals. There are many cherry blossom trees at aisles in the park. You can see fully bloomed Sakura in the end of March to the beginning of April. It is very beautiful... More

Easy to walk through to somewhere and see the sea of tombs amid the trees. Unfortunately the central avenue of cherry trees were only just starting to blossom.
