The best garden I've visited in Tokyo. Not very busy with lots of interesting history to look at. It is for sure worth the 300 yen to enter the garden. If you have time to visit only one garden in Tokyo I would recommend this one.

We were staying in Tokyo Dome. I learned from the hotel map about this garden, and it’s within walking distance. On my last day, I decided to visit this garden that morning. Nice walk, it was quiet and there were very few visitors that morning. Though the garden did not exhibits its vibrant colours as in other seasons, it’s peaceful... More

While being in the centre of of the city, this garden moves you from the busy city streets to peaceful world of old Japan. Information is provided on history of various spots in the garden. Surprisingly, was not crowded, so a good place for relaxing.

This is a nice location to visit to experience a japanese garden. The entire place can be covered in 1.5 hrs. The stroll takes your through different plants and landscapes. Very scenic and romantic.

This is a great place to see the plum blooms whilst enjoying some peace and quiet. There are a lot of benches where you can sit down and eat your lunch or just a good place to relax.

We visited here in late Feb and the plum blossoms were just coming out. The structure of the garden is very interesting and there are plenty of vantage points to view across the lake. It seems as if every twist in the path has something to reveal just around the corner. This is one we will definitely come back to... More

it was January when I visited, but the winter garden offered enough to enjoy. (I love winter gardens) This is a beautiful urban oasis. Not huge, do take the time to stop and take in the view, and contemplate. I found it restorative. This used to be an estate of a prominent family, a privileged domain with landscaping and hardscaping... More

The garden (with a 300 yen entrance fee) is located next to the Tokyo Dome so it's easy to find using the underground. We visited here early January, therefore, the garden is not at its most colourful. However, it was still a lovely way to spend a peaceful hour in Tokyo. There is an information leaflet available in English and... More

We enjoyed it very much even though it was crowded. Entrance fee 300 yen for adult, 65 and over 150yen. Children and students-free. We were able to see the whole garden in an hour. It was breathtaking! A must during late -October~November!

Neighborhood Profile
Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this day, and there are long-standing restaurants with geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
