Did you know that the Golden Gate and the Saint Francis of Assisi statues are in the courtyard?
The Conservatory Water Fountain
You can’t visit San Francisco and not visit the Conservatory Water Fountain.
Just look at that view!
Once you have experienced the San Francisco Conservatory Water Fountain you’ll be hooked. I guarantee it.
If you’re wondering about the pool in the back, it was filled in in the 1960s.
The architect who designed the building was Charles Luckman.
It has a front and back entrance.
There is an entry for people who are blind or disabled.
The Conservatory of Flowers is the largest botanical garden in California. It is located in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco.
It was started in 1913 and opened to the public in 1915.
They were able to grow and keep the plants in the Conservatory because the city of San Francisco put up a large glass roof over the garden in 1915.
The glass roof is a beautiful structure.
It allows the plants to get the full benefit of the sunshine.
The glass roof also lets in the sounds of the city.
It is a wonderful place to spend the day.
It is known as the World’s Biggest Garden.
It is a flower and plant lovers paradise.
There is a fountain that truly does grant wishes to those who throw coins in it.
You can find it by walking north of the Harajuku Station on the Yamanote Line.
You may have to walk around the back of Harajuku Station in order to find it.
Or, you can take the Yamanote Line to Harajuku Station and get off at the Endo – Harajuku Station.
At this station you should look out the right side of the train for a small little building that has the wish fountain.
There are many people there at all hours.
The fountain only works in the night, so I wish you good luck!
After leaving Harajuku Station, walk back to the main street of Takeshita Dori (don’t get lost!
It’s a very long street!) and head back in the direction of the station.
You should see a big green bus with KAWS on the side.
Take this bus to the Yamanote line and transfer to the Odakyu line at Shinjuku Station.
If you have to transfer, get off at Shinjuku Station and get back on at Yoyogi – Ueno.
There is a transfer window for Odakyu at the Yoyogi – Ueno station.
Take the Yamanote Line to Odakyu Odawara Station.
Get off at Yoyogi – Ueno Station.
Take the Odakyu line to the Odawara Station.
Make sure you get off at the right station, as you can’t get back on at the same stop.
Take the Yamanote Line back to Shinjuku and get back on the Yamanote line at Shinjuku Station.
You will end up back where you started.
Traveling by Yamanote Line is very easy and if you get lost, you can ask for directions from many of the local Japanese people you may see.
These people know all the exits and entrances to the train stations and can help you get where you need to go.
If you have never been to Tokyo before, you will be surprised to see how small and safe Tokyo is, compared to the cities you usually visit.
You will see people in traditional Japanese clothing, and hear lots of “tsukare shimasu”, “arigatou gozaimasu”, and “konnichi wa” as you walk around.
This is a great place to come and study the traditional Japanese ways, and find out about their culture.
Tokyo is also an ideal place to visit for shopping, especially if you are looking for new clothing items.
Don’t forget to visit the touristy areas, which include Takeshita Dori (Harajuku), Shibuya, Shibuya Crossing, and Ueno.
(although if you have a strong interest in anime, Shibuya Crossing is the place to be!)
If you have a camera with you, you will definitely be taking photos of Tokyo landmarks.
Some of the best are from Shibuya Crossing, Akihabara, Harajuku, and Meiji-Jingumae.
The architecture of the Tokyo subway and train station areas are very interesting, with an amalgamation of Japanese and Western design.
If you are looking for traditional Japanese music, you may find some at Tokyo University of the Arts.
There are many places to eat and drink in Tokyo.
If you want to try something different, check out the karaoke bars in Tokyo.
They are popular places to hang out and have a few drinks.
Tokyo is not only one of the most popular travel destinations in the world
