Happy New Year!

Well, it’s finally done.  2016 has been a difficult year for most and has left many people reeling and eagerly waiting for the calendar to switch over.   We’re all hoping that 2017 will prove to be better year.

With 2016 nothing more than a memory, I decided to go back and look over some New Year’s Eves from the past; the good, the bad, and yes, even the ugly.

Given that it’s 2017, I decided that 7 was a pretty good number.

If you’re planning a trip to Japan (or have already been) then names like Shinjuku kōen (kōen is ‘park’ in Japanese), Ueno kōen and Meiji Jingū (shrine) are no doubt familiar to you. While these places are quite famous, not many people initially put a trip to a park into their travel itinerary. Which is why I thought that I’d take a moment to introduce you to my all-time favourite park, not only in Tokyo, but in the world.

Yoyogi kōen.
