Top destination around Yoyogi National Gymnasium - Tokyo

It is impossible to imagine an acquaintance with the capital of Japan, without visiting one of its main permanent symbols. The Imperial Palace is simply a blessing for tourists who prefer to admire the gorgeous views of luxurious palaces and gardens. Despite the fact that the palace is located next to state institutions, it does not in the least violate the integrity of the composition of the building. The palace is fashioned in the traditional Japanese style. Be aware, that tourists are not allowed into the territory of the palace, as it is the current residence of the emperor. However, you can visit the gardens after the New Year celebration or on the Emperor’s Birthday.

Another building considered notable from an architectural point of view is the so-called “Narrow House”. This house was built based on the project of the architect Kota Mizuishi. The building came into existence, as a result of the desire to economize space. You can encounter such houses in the Suginami area. There is another district – Yanaka – which is famous for its originality. The fact is that, this is practically the only place in the capital of Japan that survived both the earthquake of 1923 and the tragic events of the Second World War. Ryunosuke Akutagawa’s hometown today acquired a futuristic look, but it was decided not to renovate the Yanaka district. This is why there is a possibility to discover the real “soul” of old Tokyo. You might find it hard to believe that next this busy city there can be such a miracle – an oasis of calm and peace.
