The seaside and the mountains.

Lovely ares abound.

9 ( +9 / -0 )

I have always liked the rivers, especially in summer. Not as hot as at the beach and surrounded by beautiful forrests and mountains, it makes a great place to get away from the city.

8 ( +8 / -0 )

Too many. Mountains when it's hot. Seasides. Flat open country. Deep forests.

7 ( +7 / -0 )

The observatory on the 45th floor of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building is free, and offers great views of the city.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Mizumoto Park in Tokyo.

Very underrated.

Beautiful wide open spaces, sequoia trees and the bouldering center.

3 ( +3 / -0 )

For me, mountains, rivers and forests.

Supermarkets in the summer heat. Best place for free, COLD, AC.

I think stormcrow was giving the Greek God of War a little bit of positive publicity. Lovely Ares abound? It is an Olympic year after all.

"Many nice parks and they are safe and bathrooms work and are clean."

Bathing is not permitted in public parks.

Almost any public park is good. For Tokyo, I've always liked Ueno Park, as it has a good mix of greenery and history. The area (Ameyoko etc.) is great to wander around in too.

There are also countless good museums with free entry -- both traditional ones, and things like fire/police/metro museum -- and even free onsen in some places (e.g. Kusatsu, Gunma-ken).

Or head to the many mountains, forests, and beaches - all for free.

Yes, that's a very good choice. It gets a little crowded with tourists, but you can't complain for free. The park right next door is also great for both adults and kids, with plenty of play equipment and a pool in the summer.
