Area Guide Around Daimon Station, Tokyo


If you are in the Daimon Station area, here are some interesting things you could do.

Feel free to follow favy!

Daimon 大門

Daimon refers to an area in Tokyo just to the east of Hamamatsu cho. It is served by the Daimon subway station. The name comes from the "Shiba Daimon" or the Great Gate of Shiba on the way to the Zojo-ji temple. Here are some things to do in the area.

Shiba Park And Zojo-ji Temple

If you walk to the west of the Daimon Station you will arrive at the Shiba Park 芝公園 in which there is the Zojo-ji temple that has been there since 1393 (the current structures are not the original, however). This temple is particularly striking because you have the Tokyo Tower as a backdrop.

Location: 4-8-55 Shibakoen, Minato-ku, Tokyo

Seaside Top Observatory

To get one of the best views in Tokyo, you can go to the Seaside Top Observatory near the station. Entrance is ¥600 (which is on the cheap side for privately-operated observatories in Tokyo). The best time to go is at sunset.

Location: 40F Sekai Boeki Center Building 2-4-1 Hamamatsucho, Minato-ku, Tokyo

Kyu Shiba Rikyu Garden 旧芝離宮恩賜庭園

If you go just to the east of the Hamamatsucho Station, there is the Japanese garden of Kyu Shiba Rikyu. There is a ¥150 admission fee. You can spend about 40 minutes there.

Location: 1 Kaigan, Minato-ku, Tokyo

Eat Tonkatsu

Daimon is a tonkatsu place (deep fried pork cutlets). There are few extremely popular restaurants for that in the area. Perhaps the best is the one below.

Tonkatsu Aoki とんかつ檍

Aoki specializes in Japanese curry and tonkatsu. With some meals, you can have both. The coating is nice and crispy and the meat is tender and juicy. For a tonkatsu of this quality, the price is more than reasonable (dishes are around ¥1,500).
Japanese food culture enthusiast. Love to explore new areas and discover local specialties.
