because people speak English
On October the 13th, I visited Tokyo with my friends. The weather was perfect, and we walked a lot. I have never expected that I could enjoy myself so much just strolling around the Tokyo station.
At Hibiya park there were gardening and a green nature event was taking a place. I could have spent my whole day there, but we had another schedule to follow, so we just had our box lunch beside the big water fountain. Various events will be held until the end of this month at Hibiya Park.
I found that inside of the Imperial Palace there are beautifully maintained lawn yard with pine trees. There were many people taking a nap and reading books. It's quiet and spacious, so it's just perfect place to relax.
The Tourist Information Center is located inside of Tokyo Station at the Marunouchi north exit. Also they have an office on the first floor of the Shin-Tokyo building. They offer information and brochures for tourists, free guided English walking tours of Marunouchi and Imperial Palace, etc. On the second floor, there is a lounge where tourist can take a rest. There are little library and spaces where you can experience some Japanese culture, and free Wi-Fi connection and free Japanese tea service are available.
Just across the road from the Tokyo station, there is a Kyoto-themed shop, called Kyoto-kan. You can see Maikos; the apprentice of geishas' dance performance, tea ceremony, and can experience other Japanese culture there depending on the day.
My Tokyo excursion was ended with "Japan Parade" which was held in Marunouchi-naka street.
I took a picture with "Namahage". Their appearances was a bit scary but actually they were very friendly :D
