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.

The French and Japanese gardens had flowers and bushes/ponds respectively. This is the English Garden, it's just a big open space.

Hey there!
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.
