Aoyama Cemetery (optional)
Managed by the Tokyo metropolitan government, this is Japan's first public cemetery, and it sits on land that was originally owned by the Aoyama family.
Perhaps the most notable resident is Hachiko, the famous dog whose statue sits dutifully at Shibuya station, where the dog would wait for its Master, long after he passed away. There was even a 2009 film based on the story of Hachiko starring American actor Richard Gere, called Hachiko: a Dog's Tale.
There is a Japanese cemetery and seperate cemetery section for foreign "residents." Notable foreigners buried here include Francis Binkley, journalist and author of numerous books on Japanese culture; Hugh Fraser, the British Ambassador to Japan in the late 1800s; Joseph Heco, the first naturalized Japanese American; and Paul Jacoulet, a French, Japan-based woodblock artist.
This is an "optional" stop on the guide as its a bit further away from the main shopping district. If you're planning on starting or ending your day here, you might find it more convenient to use Nogizaka station, as it's closest to the entrance.
Open Hours: 6am-8pm daily
Notes: The cemetery is open from dawn to dusk, daily.
Visit Time: 30min-1hr
