During the past Tokyo travel, we also visited the Imperial Garden! Only a small part of the big palace area is open to pubblic, but it's totally free so it's a must visit! It's also really easy to find, just follow the direction in the metro and you'll be in front of it!
The day was sunny and warm, perfect to explore such a big garden! We took some hours to walk inside all of it and you can immagine it's just a little part? It's full of beautiful traditional guard's houses!
After such a long walk we wanted to eat something soon so we went to one of the big palace near the Imperial Garden and we found a cool restaurant with delicious food and reasonable prices! Everything was delicious T_T.
Then we came back to Higashi Shinjuku for a little break in our hotel and later we went out for a long walk around Shinjuku. This district is fabulous 'cause every hotel is really cheap but you can go around walking and reach Shinjuku in no time! We had the famous Marui Annex in only 15 minutes on foot and we also went to Studio Alta in around 40 minutes.
We also had the Square Enix studio in one minute from our hotel 8D I took some pics of the shop some day later!
If you're searching for lolita shops you can find most of them inside the Marui Annex! Thanks to the sales I also found an amazing Aatp dress at 50% discount 8D.
After checked the Studio Alta shops and going around Shinjuku for hours we decided to go back to the Marui Annex and ate a delicious omurice with tomato sauce! If you're searching for good places with tons of restaurants you can find a lot of them in the last floor of the mall!
While we came back to the hotel we stopped to a tiny supermarket on the street and I found Sailor Moon chips XD Bagna Cauda is an italian speciality so I was really shocked when I saw this ahahah!
