Spacious long-term rental-style accommodation. Not much in the immediate vicinity, but very conveniently-located to everything else in Tokyo by metro - most sights/neighbourhoods were 3-5 stops away from the Nagatacho station. Tons of restaurants about a 10-minute walk away in the Akasaka area.

Other great finds included the Hello Kitty shop
And the worlds largest sanitary towel!
... before sun-down I could have stayed all day. For all the stereotypical images of Tokyo with it's high-rises doused in neon and the crowds and the traffic jams, the park was a gem I had truly not expected to find. Tokyo is so much more than all of the above. It is a busy and bustling city but in that park you can escape the noise and the energy all you like.
