Hotel garden with waterfalls.

Well kept walking path. Lighted...nice plants used that are lush and colourful; water falls is a nice attraction. Not close to shops is the only drawback.

This is truly my favourite place in the whole of Tokyo, maybe even Japan! The gardens are beautiful any time of the year- we saw it all covered in snow in January and that was beautiful, but it is gorgeous in spring and I imagine stunning in autumn too! Take your time and meander all around the garden- there are... More

The view from the hotel room does not do this beautiful garden justice. The pagoda is beautiful and 1200 years old. There are beautiful statues and other things to see hidden in the greenery. Plants, fish, and waterfall are all marvelous. A little private paradise right out the back door.

Do not miss a night walk in this garden! First the luxery atmosphere of the restaurant where you have to take some tea and cake, as this garden is only for visitors, and then the walk trough this splendid garfden. I had the chance to be in the cherry blossom, but will be nice in any part of the year.... More

Tucked away from the heart of bustling Tokyo is this vast garden within the Hotel Chinzanso. It has many trees including the cherry blossoms which were in bloom that time & you could hear some birds chirping happily as if to welcome us.. It's also a favorite venue for weddings among the locals.

Nice walk within a nicely designed garden, both good to go in the evening when the place is lightened up or during the day when you can appreciate the colourful trees.

We stayed at the Chinsanzo in April 2014 for one week! We selected it from the AMEX Platinum catalog (although they have since left the FHR program!) primarily because of the Japanese character of the place as well as the beautiful gardens. Most of the other five-star hotels in Tokyo are skyscraper like and this is not at all appealing.... More
