Shinjuku gyoen is a park MUCH closer to my house. You're probably wondering why I don't do my debauched drinking, and playing guitar there instead of Yoyogi Park?
I came here on this (Greenery) day, and since it was free today, I may as well see what I wasn't missing. Sure the Taiwanese pavilion is kind of nice. The greenhouse is kind of cool to all the geeky camera nerds with macro lenses. Oh, and you can't forget that rose garden. Unforgettable.
Their website amusingly states:
1. To bring items listed below.
2. To do the activities below.
3. Disrupting natural habitat such as:
4. Activities which may disrupt other visitors.
5. Impairing scenery.
6. Activities which disrupts the garden administration.
What they really mean is that all the fun things to do in a park are actually prohibited. On top of that the usual entry is 200 yen. No thanks. I'll do my getting drunk and making other visitors feel uncomfortable for free!
Ueno Zoo was also free today too so we did a two in one. SO many people. No chance to see the pandas again. Dang.
