Freddie Mercury loved this garden,Rikugien

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government manages nine historic parks.
Hamarikyu Park is famous among them.
So there’s a lot of people.

I recommend another garden.
It is Rokugien.

Its history begins in the seventeenth century.
This was the garden of a powerful samurai.
Freddie Mercury of Queen, who is a famous Japan fan, loved this garden.
You can spend a quiet time here.

Shimoda-A port town in the opening of Japan

I sometimes go to Shimoda.
Shimoda is about three hours and thirty minutes by train from Tokyo.

There is an old history.
In 1854, Matthew Calbraith Perry came to Shimoda.
He was an American admiral.
Until that time, Japan had been closed.

Currently, there are nine beaches in Shimoda.
I love this historic town.

Do you know Noh

Do you know Noh?
It is a very old japanese play. Its origin is the 14th century. It is the best of art in Japan and on the list of UNESCO. The features are costumes, music, dance and mask. You can make the time-travel before the stage.

But…It’s tired a bit. There is the Noh Theater in Ginza, Tokyo. Noh’s industry works with caricatures. On August 29, “Glass Mask” (Garasu No Kamen) will be performed in the Noh Theater.
“Glass Mask” is a very famous cartoon for girls.
