Ginza & Tsukiji

Built around the turn of the 20th century at the height of the Meiji era, this leafy block was Tokyo’s first European-style park complete with fountains and ponds. It's a pleasant spot for a break and has many facilities, including a restaurant, an outdoor concert hall and tennis courts.
