Stroll in a 17th century Japanese garden, cheer with the world’s craziest baseball fans, or ride a roller coaster that goes straight through a Tokyo skyscraper.
Let’s start at Koshikawa Koraku-en garden, an oasis right in the middle of Tokyo that’s so serene, it always makes me forget I’m in the middle of the world’s largest city. It’s my favorite garden in Tokyo, because it’s like a string of pearls – the path takes you through a series of smaller gardens, each a picturesque view in itself. Also, I’m a sucker for bridges and Korakuen has a lot of them!
Especially good times to go to Koraku-en are:
Hours: 9:00 – 17:00
Open: Every day except 12/29-1/3
