Once we had our fill of the market, we headed to the Hamarikyu Gardens. They were some typical gardens of the Edo era that belonged to the Tokugawa Shogun family. It's really nice to see all this greenery in such a major city, it was as if we left to some park far away. Very peaceful. We wandered a bit and mostly just rested by a nice pond before catching a water bus up to Asakusa.

In the morning we said goodbye to An and Andreas. They had to leave Japan earlier because Ans sister was getting married.
