Shop in the local area and chill out in a Japanese garden.
In this tour you will be introduced to the best shops and cafes in Kiyosumi-shirakawa, and then chill out on the grass in a Japanese garden.
Surrounded by rivers and canals, Kiyosumi-shirakawa developed as a common people's town, in the Edo period, and has been a popular residential area ever since. Kiyosumi Gardens, located in the heart of this area, once were the gardens of a daimyo's (a feudal lord's). The gardens are loved by the locals for their variety of flowers and birds.
There are many shops in Kiyosumi-shirakawa which are rooted in the daily lives of the locals, such as bakeries and cafes. Recently, a San Fransisco born coffee shop opened its first overseas branch here!
・Enjoy a relaxing afternoon on the lawn of Kiyosumi Gardens. Sit among beautiful flowers and look out for the variety of birds that fly through the garden.
・We will introduce you to great coffee shops, sweet shops and bakeries. You can buy what you like and have a picnic in Kiyosumi Gardens afterwards.
