Getting enough of the oridinary TOKYO? Now try this!

Jiyugaoka has been one of the best destination of Japanese, especially women, for shopping and living. Since it's not a tourists' destination so far, you can enjoy the secret of real Japanese uptown culture. Plus I bet you'd be very much impressed by the great nature of Todoroki valley just a couple of stations away by Tokyu railway. If we still have time, let's visit Joshinji Temple, where you can enjoy the beautiful garden and highly respected Buddha statues.


This is an example for the afternoon program.
