“High in Contrast”
Compared with my hometown in Germany, Tokyo has 18-times more citizens.
So, it’s no wonder that the part of the city I am living in seems for me very big and like a concluded city. And every other area I visit seems as another concluded city.
I have never noticed a town in Germany with the same variety and diversity.
For example, when I walked around the area between Imperial Palace and Tokyo
Central Station, the contrast between modern architecture and the historic Imperial palace was overwhelming.
While walking along high-rise buildings and through busy businessmen and women, I felt the bustling activities of Tokyo.
Completely contrary to this, did I feel a calmed down and relaxing atmosphere after entering Kokyo Higashi Kouen.
I was favourably impressed after walking a few steps and entering the Ni-No-Maru Garden.
On the edge of the park (with a beautiful lake) is a very nice tea house standing in a gorgeous nature. It was so quiet and I felt completely comfortable with being there.
Nearly one place in Tokyo with two quite different faces. Simply amazing!
