This incredibly beautiful garden is located right beside Tokyo Dome City, in the middle of Tokyo. It’s one of Tokyo’s oldest parks and gardens – the construction started in 1629 by the feudal lord Tokugawa Yorifusa.
I love visiting aquariums, and one that I like very much is Sunshine Aquarium in Ikebukuro, Tokyo. It’s located at the top floor AND the roof of a building in the middle of the city.
During my last summer living in Tokyo I went on many short outings to have many memories to bring back with me to Sweden. I enjoyed (and still enjoy) walking along small roads in areas not very frequented by tourists.
I have only visited one zoo in Japan so far, and that was Ueno Zoo in the middle of Tokyo. I wouldn’t mind going there again. It was a very nice zoo with many beautiful and some rare and exotic animals. The most famous are of course the pandas!
Something very fun that me and my family did when they visited me in Japan in 2013 was that we went to Hakkeijima Sea Paradise, just outside Tokyo. It’s a very big aquarium with several houses and areas; one of them is outside where you can see penguin shows, touch the white whale and play with the dolphins.
At the end of March and beginning of April of 2013 my family came to visit me in Tokyo. We did all sorts of things, and I showed them my favorite spots and the different sides of Tokyo.
When I lived in Tokyo between 2012-2013 we only had snow for one single day. Me and my room mate took the opportunity to build a snowman in the square outside the train station, to the amusement of the Japanese… Then eventually March came around, and I visited shrines and parks to enjoy the spring foliage.
It’s time to continue telling about things I experienced when I lived in Japan! On November 14, 2012 I went with my school on a school trip to Kamakura and Enoshima. It was a lovely day!
In the middle of November last year I went on a date in Asakusa. It was the first time I went there, and it immediately became one of my favorite spots in Tokyo. Sure, I like the modern cities where there is bustling life and young people and always something cool going on! But I have always loved history, and sometimes it’s nice to go to the areas of Tokyo where it’s all about the city’s history.
September 2, 2012. Tokyo Sky Tree. Didn’t watch the view though, but we kept to the shopping centre and the aquarium.
