do not come here with a tour group, it is worth spending a little more time at the shrine as sometimes there are weddings progressing through.

This park houses the nicest Shinto shrine complex in Tokyo, but the stroll through the park makes it even more worthwhile. It is also very close to Harajuku and Shibuya which means you can visit this park while seeing the other great attractions nearby

Great little green place away from the madness of Tokyo. Were there on a weekend, so the were many people there just relaxing, playing games, eating like in any other big city. The temple is also very nice.

Took a nice stroll with my wife in the morning, it was a peaceful stroll into the past and you learn about the Meiji period and it's significance in bringing Japan into the modern age.

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
