I guide the recommended spot that is near from 2-chome Shiba!



Large temple eminent Japan of the Tokugawa family to inherit the shogunate connection.

One Zojo-ji Temple of Jodo sect of Buddhism seven main temple was known as a family temple of the Tokugawas and was opened in 1393 (as for what moved to Shiba in1598). A lot of highlight including 120 pieces of ceiling pictures fitted in the father of the nobility with three deliverance gates (San-gedatu-mon) which symbolized Zojo-ji Temple appointed to the important cultural property of the country, Tokugawa family to inherit the shogunate cemetery, main hall of a Buddhist temple and treasure exhibition room, a ceiling of Koshoden-big lecture hall.

Shiba Park


Nature is rich so as not to think with the downtown area.

It features a site surrounding Zojo-ji Temple in one of the oldest parks in Japan. You can fully enjoy the flower of the season in the park which is full of green. It is known as a spot of colored leaves in spring in a cherry tree, the autumn. Maple valley of the artificial ravine where the waterfall has the highlight, the Tokyo’s greatest burial mound with a square front and a round back, Maruyama old burial mound. In addition, it is ideal because there is the walk road to enjoy a walk leisurely.

Tokyo Tower


333m in height, a symbolic spot of Tokyo.

Tokyo Tower which is known as the tourist attraction where is more popular as a communications tower. A large observatory (150m in height) which whole Kanto can overlook, a special observatory (250m in height) which Mount Fuji can expect distantly are the highlight. The night light up and illuminations have the value of seeing. I quit it though I get nervous and am glad of it being possible for various ways of enjoying to look when good.
