A small garden compared to other gardens but it is worth to have a walk inside. This garden reproduced famous landscapes from the country of Japan

There is a small fee (300 yen) but it is well worth it. We saw kingfishers on the pond and toward the plum trees the park had a traditional Japanese juggler using umbrella and other types of nostalgic items. It is a great get away from the hectic area that surrounds it. Also, near Iidabashi there are hundreds of restaurants... More

One of the largest and most beautiful Japanese gardens in Tokyo. If you're into gardens and parks, take your time to stroll around its various attractions and enjoy its beauty and diverse scenery.

A very nice place to take some pictures but not that impressive. You would do well to call and check to see if the renovation is still going on, not that it would be that much more impressive.

The concept and layout of the garden is very interesting. Unfortunately, in August 2013, a lot of the areas were under renovation and the garden is not at its best. A lot of midges too, in this weather, so probably avoid until cooler weather. Still pleasant and interesting to walk around but not unmissable.

This garden is admittedly a little bit of a journey if your staying in Ueno/Shinjuku area but by god its amazing. Such a variety of plant life and landscapes in one garden. It has a pathway to walk around but there's such an assault of things to look at it will take you a good while to look around properly.... More

You should save at least one hour to visit the park, this way you can make a tour through the park and sit on a bench. Even thought it is paid, it is worth the price to see this beautiful garden with seasonal flowers. Some of the seasonal flowers: Japanese Apricot: Mid February Cherry Blossom: Late March to mid-April Iris:... More
