One more post about tourist attractions in this fantastic city of Tokyo. This time I will talk about some other places that I’ve been to, like Ginza, Chiyoda and Sumida.
It is considered the luxury district in Tokyo. To have a store in this area means that you have status and money, a lot of it, and it is basically for the wealthy. This does not mean that you can’t have a walk, go to a sweet coffee shop or restaurant and see the area. It is a shame that I don’t have any picture of it. To go to Ginza you have to stop at Ginza Station on the Hibiya, Marunouchi and Ginza Subway Lines and Yurakucho Station on the JR Yamanote Line, JR Keihin-Tohoku Line and Yurakucho Subway Line.
Tokyo Imperial Palace 皇居 – surrounded by a series of moats and high walls, it was an ancient Edo Castle and now has been the official residence of the Japanese imperial family since 1868. If you want to visit inside, you have to register yourself on their website (free). The palace and garden have a reputation as the most expensive square kilometre in the world.
Imperial Palace East Gardens 皇居東御苑 – is open to the public but the private grounds are off limits. The garden and the palace are closed on Mondays and Fridays. To get inside find the following entrances: Ote-mon Gate, Hirakawa-mon Gate or Kitahanebashi-mon Gate.
Sumida City Ward 墨田区
Tokyo Skytree 東京スカイツリ – is a television broadcasting tower and landmark of Tokyo, not far away from Asakusa. It has two observation deck, and at the base there is a shopping centre and an aquarium. To get there, you can go to Tokyo Skytree Station (Narihirabashi Station) on the Tobu Isesaki Line, and Oshiage Station on the Hanzomon Subway Line, Asakusa Subway Line and Keisei Oshiage Line.
