This park is right in the middle of a huge consumer district, full of giant buildings and neon signs. It is by far the nicest place I have been in Tokyo.

It's great to see the lovely pictures Matt! Ken wants to know if it is Hirohito's Palace Gardens. Write more about what your duties are,the food and the people you are meeting ok? Good luck, Love A. Jill
Hi Matt, Really enjoying getting your updates. It looks like you are managing to get around such a foreign place. Do you find that people speak a little bit of english or are you quite isolated? When do you go off to Canada Farm? Well, hope you are having a good time and look forward to the next installment. : ) Em
This isn't Hirohito's Palace Garden. I believe those are near the palace in Central Tokyo. I'm not sure how open to tourists that area is. Many people can speak at least a little bit of English, and the train system is designed in a way that makes it quite easy to get around. I think I'll be heading to the farm around September 15th, but I'm not entirely sure yet. I can survive on about $15 a day here, including lodging, so monetary conditions are not forcing me to leave anytime soon.
