Good direction signs from the train station. We spent an hour there and it was pretty and peaceful. You might hear some noises from a nearby roller coaster at some areas of the park.

One of the most beautiful Japanese gardens in Tokyo well worth a visit and really a must if you are in Tokyo, with a skline of the sky scrappers behind looks like a mini central park

Easy to find from the Oedo line, just one block and well sign posted. If you are into Japanese gardens this is a must see and has all of the elements required in terms of copying nature, hills bridges, water, trees and statures.

This lovely circuit garden provides some welcome peace amongst the bustling Tokyo back drop. There are some lovely smaller replications of other well known attractions.

Lovely Japanese garden, well worth a visit. It's just next to Tokyo dome, so if you want peace and quiet, maybe chekc whether there's a game on before visiting. Anyway, one of the best gardens in Tokyo, a real haven of peace among the hustle and bustle.b

Looked popular with the locals. Under 100yen to get in. My advise is to wear long pants and covered in shoes. I arrived is a skirt and... More

A piece of tranquillity in the city. A lovely surprise after a long trip and no sleep. Restored some energy and great find in the middle of a busy city

First of all it's easy to get to this garden because it's in the middle of the city, next to Tokyo Dome. The entrance was hard to find and had to walk all the way around it to get there. The garden itself is nice, but it's not so perfectly maintained like I've seen in other Japanese Gardens. It is... More

This park is a bit away from everything but don't miss it. A traditional Japanese garden with lovely paths and very peaceful. Subway to Iidabashi from where there are signs all the way to the park. Small entrance fee.

Thank Lars S

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.
