With November already passing its halfway point, Tokyo's Taito City is welcoming the best season for viewing fall foliage! We would like to introduce recommended spots for viewing the colorful foliage of Taito City.
Sanyabori Park is a great spot to appreciate seasonal plants and TOKYO SKYTREE, and has even starred as a location for TV dramas. The leaves in fall enjoy the same popularity as the cherry blossoms in spring. To enjoy fall scenery unique to Tokyo in a serene atmosphere, come visit the park. Sanyabori Park is a 15-minute walk from Asakusa Station on several train lines.
To actively enjoy the fall colors, give Ueno Park a try. Every part of this spacious park becomes dyed in red and yellow, creating a wonderful day for visitors. Enjoy a picnic along with the views of Japanese fall foliage at Ueno Toshogu Shrine in the park, or view the leaves from a boat on Shinobazu Pond. Ueno Park is a 2-minute walk from Ueno Station on several train line.
At the Kyu-Iwasaki-tei (old Iwasaki house) Gardens, you can enjoy fall foliage along with beautiful retro architecture. A highlight of the garden is the large ginkgo trees, said to be four centuries old. Golden leaves shining in the sunlight, alongside the beautiful mansion, create a gorgeous landscape. Kyu-Iwasaki-tei Gardens is a 3-minute walk from Yushima Station on the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line.
