Green Space around Surugadai Building
Walk southwards down Hongo Dori from JR Ochanomizu Station to reach the building, standing tall in the student town of Kanda Surugadai in Chiyoda, Tokyo, an area where old samurai residences once lined the streets in Edo period. Green space can be found not just around the ground level but at the lower rooftop where forest, park and garden sparks off its green.
Rich in green, this is "Surugadi Building Green Space".
