Imperial Palace

The current Imperial Palace in the centre of Tokyo is the home of Japan’s Imperial Family. The large park has two photogenic bridges which form the entrance to the inner palace. The stone bridge in front is called Meganebashi (Eyeglass Bridge) and second bridge behind on two levels is called Nijubashi (Double Bridge).

Yoyogi Park

A beautiful big park near Harajuku where you can rent a bike for 200 yen (About £1.10) for an hour, and there are a few cafes and a river and nice places to walk and hang out.

Tsukiji Fish Market

Tokyo’s fish market is one of the world’s largest fish markets and the Jogai Shijo, or Outer Market, welcomes visitors and makes for a fascinating visit. Apart from seeing the most amazing fish you can take the opportunity to have a super fresh sushi breakfast in one of the many eating places alongside the market. The market also sells professional cooking utensils and tableware which are great for gifts or souvenirs. The long standing market venue will close at some point so check for its location before visiting.
