In the afternoon, I took my sketchbook to Kitanomaru Park (北の丸公園), south of the Imperial Palace. The location is well shaded, with lots of benches. I sat by the lake to draw patrons and the local scenery.
The park was a collection of vibrant greens. The Tokyo summer has a reputation for its brutal heat and humidly but the weather was beautiful. Within the park grounds contains The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo and the Science Museum.
