    We loved the Sakura and the peaceful atmosphere. Don’t miss the gold top of one building. It is pretty stroller friendly too.

    If you wait too long way into December to see the Fall’s colors, don’t fret! Go to Hondoji which is just outside of Tokyo. We went in December 9th and still plenty of yellow, red and green colors...
