A must see in Tokyo. Come to the garden at the back of shine. The Japanese garden is what inspired Monet to create a series of masterpieces Water Lilies. This garden is probably the best you can see in the world. Feel the tranquil and fluid nature of the moment, and that is the essence of Japanese philosophy of beauty

Yasukuni Shrine is a very well maintained shrine for Japanese war dead. It’s serene and very peaceful, but it’s only 10 minutes walking from the nearby busy metro station.

The museum is a bit controversial, but i liked it and think it be worth visiting for foreigners I tested in Japan's military history

This is the only place in Tokyo where you can find some peace and quiet with the absence of Chinese tourists.
It's a wonderful place to spend the afternoon.

A beautiful and expansive shrine dedicated to commemorating Japan’s war dead. It is an experience to see the history and to learn the differences in how they saw their roles in warfare, throughout history.
