A sheer joy to stroll around this lovely presented garden of 100 hectares or so. Originally part of the Imperial Palace grounds next door they were opened to the public in 1949. It is a delight to walk the pathways and look across the wide expanse of grass and view the hundreds of pine trees that have all been manicured... More

A must see if traveling to Japan. We took the bullet train which allowed us to see much of the countryside. An experience we will never forget!

On 3rd April my Japanese friends and I started at Tokyo Central Station and walked through this vast area from Wadakuramon Gate to Nijuubashi Bridge; and then to Kusunukiko Rest House right opposite of the bronze statute of Kusunukiko. It was a very windy day. This vast area has many ornamental pine trees donated by many people all over Japan.... More

What an incredible visual experience. The colors of the cherry blossoms hanging in the trees, falling like snow, covering the ground in a blanket of pink...stunning

It's hard to believe that you're in the middle of a major city when you visit here, it's quiet and relaxing. Grounds are very well maintained and the water is soothing. A lovely place to leave the city behind and relax for a little while.

Wonderful place to relax after a day of sightseeing and shopping. We happened to be here when the sun was setting. The warm, golden glow of the setting sun bouncing off the beautiful red leaves..amazing. Move on to the imperial garden across the road after.

This place makes a very romantic spot at dusk right next to the fountains. It is almost deserted, clean and the fountains change their pattern from calming overflows to roaring and impressive displays. We stumbled on this accidentally while looking for the imperial gardens and ended up staying for some time due to how relaxing it was.
