We recommend Nezu Shrine which is a shinto shrine located in Bunkyo ward, which is also within walking distance from the Ueno area. The shrine is best known for its Azalea festival in springtime but is a great spot to visit all year round. Tsukiji Honganji Temple is a Jodo Shinshu Buddhism temple with a unique look as the main hall of the temple was constructed with a motif of ancient Indian architecture. Tokyo has several great parks in the city center such as Yoyogi Park and Shinjuku Gyoen, but for a more chilled and peaceful atmosphere, Inokashira Onshi Park is a perfect place. Inokashira Onshi Park is located in one of the coolest neighbourhoods in Tokyo, Kichijoji area, where a lot of trendy and stylish cafes and shops gather. Also, visit the Tokyo tower.
