Established in 1873, this is one of the first five parks in Japan and offers perfect views of Tokyo Tower. The park is built around Zojoji Temple (the one featured in ‘Wolverine’) and holds an ancient tomb built in the fifth century. Around 200 cherry blossom trees grow around the tomb and near the pond, and at night when Tokyo Tower is lit up, the scenery takes on a magical feel.
