TAMA GORYO (Musashino Imperial Mausoleum)
How to go:
Take the JR Chuo line or the Keio Ry from Shinjuku station, 45 to 60 min.
to JR TAKAO station or KEIO TAKAO station. They are next to each other.
Two emperors and their wives are buried here; Taisho Tenno (Emperor Taisho) and Showa Tenno (Emperor Showa, known to us as Hirohito).
Tama Goryo is a lovely forested park, fully accessable to everyone.
I have been told by some Gaijin (foreigners) that no one can visit Hirohito's grave. Little do they know.
