I enjoy picnics around Tokyo

Sandwich and autumn leaves

The weather is amazing and warm. Okay! Have a lunch picnic.

Today's food and drink

Starbucks sandwich "Holiday chicken firone"
Instant coffee (stick type)

It's a simple picnic where you bought food near the station.
I have a picnic at the Tokyo Metropolitan Garden Museum, so I will tell you about the autumn leaves.

※This article is an English translation of an article posted in December 2018.



Today's autumn leaves

  • About 70% autumn leaves
  • Currently seen colors:Red、Yellow、Green

Some trees are red at the top and green at the bottom.
I like most when I can enjoy some colors together.
There are parasols, table chairs, and benches in the square with the lawn, so there were some people enjoying lunch.


About the garden

The Tokyo Garden Museum offers three types of gardens.
I would like to share the atmosphere of each garden.


The Lawn

A spacious area covered with beautiful lawn since the time when the museum was the Prince Asaka Residence.
There are some chairs and some people are relaxing with a picnic seat on the lawn.


European Garden

In spring, the cherry tree, a gift from Washington, D.C., is beautiful.
There are also umbrellas, chairs, tables and benches.
From here, I enjoyed the bright yellow ginkgo tree and the oak tree.


Japanese Garden

There is a tea room and pond, and autumn leaves are beautiful.
When I looked into the pond from a small bridge, a carp was swimming in the autumn leaves!

Autumn leaves are reflected in the pond where the carp swims

Please take a nice photo and show it on your blog or Instagram.


For those who visit the Tokyo Garden Museum for the first time

Garden information is at the bottom of the blog.
Because it is a paid garden, it is neatly maintained and has a trash can.
A convenient 6-minute walk from both Meguro Station and Shirokanedai Station, and there are cafes and convenience stores in the vicinity, so it's a convenient place to have a picnic.
Autumn leaves can also be seen on the street trees around the garden.

Nearby cafe

About 10 minutes on foot from the Garden Museum, I found a cute cafe near JR Meguro Station.
 Little Happiness Meguro』 I was very relaxed at a small cafe attached to the clothes shop.
I ate "Pear and White Chocolate Tart Muffin".
I will post a link as soon as I have an article about the cafe.
