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.

Don't expect too much. It is just a square with some fountains. 30 minutes if entertainment at the most. The imperial garden are accross the road, so do combine the both.

This is a very beautiful garden that I think is a must to visit in Tokyo. A very calm and colorful garden at the center of a bustling city. You should pay to enter the park and it is rather cheap compared to anything else in Tokyo. Plan to spend at least 3-4 hours here and bring your food and... More

Beautiful orange and yellow leaves littered the grounds around the quiet coy pond. A great garden to enjoy a quiet walk.

The gardens are huge and overlooks the entrance to the palace is impressive. All very neat and tidy, the streets and the huge lawned garden. You have to walk a bit but worth it.
