Area with Hamarikyu Gardens

7 minutes walk from Shiodome Station and Tsukiji fish Market, 12 minutes walk from Shimbashi Station, 15 minutes walk from Ginza 4-chome intersection.


In Ginza, you can enjoy sweets and Kabuki, and you can also take a water bus from Hamarikyu Gardens to Asakusa.


Tsukiji is nearby so let's go for lunch.
Although the Tsukiji market has been closed, there are many shops around the place where the market was located, and many tourists still visit.
In another article, I will share the seafood bowl shop I went to.


When you have finished your meal, I recommend that you buy interesting sweets at the "Sanokiya" at the Tsukiji Outer Market and go to Hamarikyu.
I will share about the "Sanokiya" shop in the next article.


Hamarikyu Garden Picnic Area

There is a bench in "Outdoor Table Square", so please enjoy the interesting sweets you bought at "sanokiya".



There are also trash can and drink vending machines.
