Not too many trees or shrubs were in bloom, but those that were blooming were pretty spectacular. The gardens/ palace were surrounded by a moat with koi swimming about.
After visiting the gardens I checked-out the nearby museum of modern art which contained four floors of some pretty eye-popping paintings.
It's still amazing to me how such serene areas, like these gardens, coexist with this hustling, skyscraper laden megatropolis. Such is Japan, and not only in Tokyo, but seemingly everywhere. I am still in search of a town with less than one or two hundred thousand people - I know I'll find one soon.
Anyhow, I did take a few pictures of the gardens so have a look below.
