  • It’s a lesser known Sakura viewing spot. One of the most amazing spots in fact.
  • I love cemeteries, and if you do too, it should definitely be on your to-see list. It's huge, it's perfect for a long lazy stroll on a sunny winter day, and it's beloved by all Tokyo cats. Come here in spring for unforgettable cherry blossom views.
