Koishikawa Botanical Garden in Bunkyo ward is a nice place to see colorful autumn foliage. It takes less than 40 minutes from Tokyo Station by train and walking. This place used to be a vacation house for Tokugawa Shogun. The garden is now managed by Tokyo University. If you don't like to walk for a long distance, let's take public transportation to the nearest station.

Some tourists might have watched Japanese Jidaigeki, or historical drama, named Ohoka Echizen. Echizen Ohoka was the name of the hero on this drama. He was a chief of Metropolitan Police in the Edo period. He had best friend whose name was Iyori Sakakibara in this drama. Iyori was the chief doctor of the hospital called Koishikawa Yojosho. Now the hospital turned to this Koishikawa Botanical Garden. Please look for some remains of the hospital.
