It was very nice day for walking today. I went to Hibiya park near Hibiya subway station or Yurakucho JR station. Yesterday I heard Ex Japanese prime minister Yasuhiro Nakasone gave his white roses which had been growing at his cottage where Mr. Nakasone and American president Ronald Reagan had met, so it reminded me there is a beautiful rose garden at Hibiya park. Though they held something drinking-beer event at the park today, I couldn’t watch enough roses. (I can’t imagine why alcohol drinking event was held at the public park where children come.) After all, I was not able to find Nakasone’s white new rose.

Close to the Hibiya park, there is the Imperial Hotel (Teikoku Hotel) over the street. It is a good place to have a tea.

There was a small square on the way to Yurakucho station. Look, here, Godzilla!

In fact, he is not so huge, but elaborate.

In this plaza, there are many Japanese movie stars’ autographs & handprints like a Chinese theater in L.A.
