One day tour of city using the subway (underground railway).
If you are here for just a day or so, we suggest you use our "By Area/Subway/Station: search facility (at the base of each page) to look for places to go around the subway station nearest your hotel.

Before you read further we suggest you locate the closest subway or train station to your accommodation and its approximate locality. Find out how here .

For an ultra quick tour, we suggest:

Kushida Shrine 
1) Nakasu Area (Take the subway to Nakasu Kawabata.)
Visit Asian Art Museum (Skip if short of time)

That is Ohori Park, where you are ultimately heading. Head out of the castle grounds towards the lake. At the road, turn left and walk along what is left of the castle walls to the small pool at the end.
Cross the road in front of you and look for a large wooden gate into Gokoku Shrine .

Come out of the shrine and turn left. Follow the large road until you get to the NHK building. Then cross the road, and follow the signs for the Art Museum .
You will find yourself coming into Ohori Park (Chinese Theme). As you get into the park, look on your left for a little set of wooden gates.
