There are some great Edo Shogun/ Daimyo Gardens in Tokyo. We've recommended Hama-rikyu Garden, which was place Shogun hunt with a falcon in the Edo period. This garden is very beautiful and you can feel Edo however you stay in Ginza area.
If you've not visit there yet, you'd better go to Hama-rikyu Garden on 2nd day (Fri.) or 3rd day (Sat.) in January 2015. Because Japanese New year's event will be held. 
A part of Japanese traditional falconry "Hohyo-jutsu" performs, which is the art of letting a hawk loose. And Japanese art "Aiki-do" performs too. "Aiki-do" is the art of self-defense that takes advantage of the opponent's own movements. 
And you can join in Japanese New Year's traditional games. 
On 3rd day in January, guided garden tour by English language is available, it's free! Besides you can enjoy Japanese powdered green tea & Edo food!!                                                                  (by Sae)
