  • Nestled at the western end of the lake is the Inokashira Benzaiten, an intriguing collection of historic buildings including a shrine. The Ghibli Museum is located further southwest.

  • This is a serene temple built on a lake and ideal for contemplation. If you get through the madness of the Ghibli museum come here afterwards and find some peace. There is something picture postcard perfect about the view from a park bench by the lake. It's a popular spot and there's even a vending machine here, but then again there are vending machines all over Tokyo. Nice spot to devote half an hour out of a mad touristic rush.
