If you want to see the Imperial Palace, Kokyo Gaien is on its way. Hire a bike if you can to explore it.

The Imperial gardens were closed due to a holiday but I had my picnic here in the area. You can see the palace in the distance and Nijubashi bridge.

Lots of pine trees are planted in a center of garden. These are Edo era symbol. Scyscrapers are found over there. Those are current symbol. The contrast is so impressed. This is the best place to go on a picnic for lunch on day off....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
