We love Tokyo. When we think Tokyo, we think the flashy lights, the big buildings, the hidden ramen and sushi joints in basements of department stores, the people with their eyes glued to their phones everywhere you turn. OK, maybe we romanticize everything but that last part with the phones. But here’s the deal: Tokyo is a big city full of stimulation. And yet, visiting in November, we came away appreciating a different Tokyo: A beautiful and serene Tokyo. Don’t believe us? Take a look at some of these relaxing photos:

Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden is a beautiful weekday escape from the Tokyo chaos. Weekends we’re told is a different story.

Vibrant colors was the name of the game in Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.

Reflecting pool after reflecting pool captured our hearts and the attention of our camera lens.

It was raining when we visited the Imperial Palace, but the rain added it’s own touch of beauty to exploring the palace grounds.

No foliage, just stunningly clear views of Mount Kilimanjaro from the bullet train

But at the end of the day, a return to our hotel reminded us the peaceful National Gardens and Imperial Palace are set amidst a giant and bustling city

The sun reflected off the clouds in beautiful ways on our final day in Tokyo.Tokyo foliage, Tokyo skylines, and so much more make this city a must to visit any time of year!
