If you like the idea of a formal garden in the middle of Tokyo this will not disappoint. We planned to get the ferry to up town but unfortunately were too late check the times. The ladies in the mobile tea shop were great the gardens were fine.

Beautiful gardens set against skyscrapers - lovely water ponds and teahouse in the middle was perfect. 300 year old pine was impressive and gardens well kept. Lots of birds to see .... A wildfowl heaven.

Beautiful, lush gardens to stroll through. Lots of beautiful trees, foliage was just starting to turn colour when we were there. We visited the Tea House and enjoyed the experience of the Tea Ceremony. At the other end of the park we took a ferry boat for a cruise up the river which was lovely.

When you get inside use the map they give you to get around the gardens as they are very big and lots of paths.It has lots of signs around the gardens with historical facts.The one thing that spoils it is its position which is surrounded by tall buildings and a lot of traffic noise.It is worth a look because of...

A must see. You can enjoy the park at your leisure. You will see the 300 year old black pine tree here.

This oasis of strolling garden offers great photo shots of the high rise buildings and their reflections in the lake of the park. A small ferry calls here and there is a tea house open on the weekends at least.

Hama Rikyu gardens would have been understandably more beautiful in other seasons where the wildlife are more vibrant. Although a rainy day, we still appreciated the tranquility as the rain probably drive the vast majority of tourists away. We then had an experience at the tea house in the gardens which even had instructions on the technique of having Japanese... More

The gardens are a wonderful break from the busy life of modern Tokyo and being close to the busy fish market are perfect to follow. The staff here are incredibly helpful, it is well worth taking the free audio guide or more correctly audio visual guide, this explains the gardens and their history very well in good sized sections which...

These gardens surround the Palace. From what i know you are not allowed access into the palace grounds, however the gardens surrounding it are very nice. Good for a picnic, running or just a walk.

nice gardens tranquil and peaceful away from the chaos of the city - we arrived by boat on a combined ticket and spent 1 hour wandering through the gardens - there is a nice tea house jutting out onto the lake but it was closed when we visited, very peaceful place to visit

Staying in Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi

Neighborhood Profile
Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi
Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The neighboring area of Shinbashi is a district of much older commercial buildings and it's a great place to join 'salary men' enjoying a drink and snacks at street stalls under the railway bridges after work.
