We had a quite short visit to this garden because it was raining a lot. We had mancha tea and japanese sweets in the tea house. That was nice, especially when we got the normal table instead of floor seats.

A fine example of Japanese stroll gardens revealing finely pruned pines, azaleas,crepe myrtles and maples The path winds across stone bridges and onto stepping stones across a pebble beach beside a waterfall which tumbles down the hill in a winding pond.

Typcai Japan! Peaceful sorroundings yet with some dignity. Get into the end part and listen the air, you will find it. 典型的な日本の静寂と平和をたたえ、かつ威厳のある庭園。奥へ進み、耳を澄ませてみよう、きっと実感できる。

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
