Grab a coffee, craft beer or cocktail and find a seat.
Need to work?
There’s nomad desks, Wi-Fi and even free seating for meetings.
Tokyo at its urban coolest.
Tokyo has plenty of parks for relaxing and picnicking, but this hidden gem is the best place to escape the summer sun.
Situated in a residential neighbourhood, the ravine is just 20 minutes by train from central Tokyo but a world apart in atmosphere.
Walk alongside the Yazawa River in a valley of greenery, complete with waterfalls, a temple and an enticing tea room.
A great spot to cool down.
Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum
How about a spot of outdoor culture?
At this open-air museum, you’ll take a stroll through Japanese architectural history.
Given the country’s record of urban development and earthquakes, this is a rare chance to see relocated farmhouses and residences from the Meiji Period (1868-1912) onwards.
Forest Beer Garden
Every summer, the Outer Gardens of the Meiji Shrine host a cheery pop-up beer garden. The setting is idyllic and the range of craft beers excellent.
With seating for around 1,000 people, this is one of Tokyo’s biggest beer gardens – but the all-you-can-eat and -drink menu makes it a popular choice, so turn up early or book ahead!
