41 Hours In Tokyo: Walking Around Tokyo

Previous posts about my brief trip to Tokyo:

Sheraton Miyako Hotel

Tsukiji Fish Market

Sushi and Beer at 6am

After sushi and beer, Charlie and I decided to go see the Imperial Gardens.  It turned out to be a fairly easy walk from the fish market.  It was still pretty early in the morning, so the East Gardens weren’t open yet.  However, we did get to walk around a large part of the outside gardens.  From pictures I’ve seen, the East Gardens look a bit more inviting and decorative, but we still got to walk around the outer gardens and experience it with virtually nobody else there.  The interesting thing about the gardens is that they’re right in the middle of the city.  In this picture, you can see one of the palace buildings along with traffic lights, and some modern office buildings in the background.

There’s a moat around the gardens, and some pretty awesome stone work that’s been there for a long time, along with some beautiful cherry blossom trees.  The last picture gives you a great idea of the proximity the Imperial Gardens have to the skyscrapers that climb the sky in Tokyo.
