Hi there! This is Tomomi and I’m in the President Office.
I wanna start my post by asking you a question.
“Where do you go when you wanna refresh yourself?”
To answer this question, I would like to share with you my three
1.Todoroki Valley (等々力渓谷)
When you feel like escaping from busy days, Todoroki Valley is the best place to go!
It is located in Setagaya-
The valley stretches for 1.2 km along the river. While walking the course, you can enjoy different views in each season. In February and March, you can see plum trees. In April, you can see cherry blossoms. During autumn, you can enjoy red leaves. The beauty of nature is there. The air is crisp and clear. It’s very relaxing and refreshing.
2.Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building Observatories (東京都庁 展望台)
When you wanna refresh yourself, you might wanna go somewhere high. Then you might come up with an idea of going to Tokyo Tower or Tokyo Sky Tree. But you can also go to Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building! This is one of my
- The place is located in Shinjuku, so it's very convenient to visit.
- The entrance is free of charge. Meanwhile, other observatories charge you 1,000 to 3,000 yen.
- It is open until 11PM, so I can also enjoy a night view of Tokyo.
The building has two decks (North and South) at 202m height. From there you can see landmarks in Tokyo such as Tokyo Tower, Tokyo Sky Tree, and Roppongi Hills. If the weather is good and sunny, you can even see Mt.Fuji from there!
I would really recommend you to go there as the view is amazing! This is worth visiting!
3. Tokyo Mosque (東京ジャーミィ）
Tokyo Mosque or Tokyo Camii is located in Yoyogi Uehara, together with Turkish Cultural Center. This is one of the largest mosques in Japan and apparently the materials to build the mosque were brought by Turkey.
Even you are not Muslim, you can still visit the place.
The first time I visited there, I was a high school student. It was a field trip to understand Islamic culture and I didn't know what to expect. But when I went there, I was stunned by how beautiful the place is. Since then I like to visit the place time to time. The place makes you feel that you are completely in a different world and I bet you will find a peace within yourself.
At the same time, as this is a mosque, there are several things you need to keep in your mind. I would like to quote from the official website (
So these are my three
Hope you get to know new places and will visit there sometime soon!
Thank you for reading!
