Tokyo - Hamrikyu Garden

After the fish market i walked to the Hamrikyu Garden which was only a few minutes away. President Grant once drank tea in this garden with Emporer Meiji but that site is now long gone so I did not bother posting a picture as it's just grass now.

video of me trying to do the tea ceremony. you're supposed to do things like admire the bowl.... i can't do it. i don't care about pots and pans.

After the garden i took a ferry cruise up to Asakusa
