    If you want to get a real taste of the Japanese culture, then you have every reason to visit Ueno Park. In this place, you can find a number of ancient temples and shrines as well as some of the best kept traditional galleries and museums in Japan. This is also an awesome place to visit during the springtime when over 1000 cherry trees are blooming.


    3. Imperial Palace East Garden

    The Imperial Palace is the Emperor’s official residence. The castle ruins, guardhouses, and the wide green lawns are some of the best attractions in the east garden area. If you happen to be in Tokyo on the 2nd of January or 23rd of December, then you may be lucky to patron the entire building since these are the only days when the public and visitors are allowed to visit the entire palace.
