The traditional gardens in Tokyo city are lovely to relax in and enjoy a moment of inner peace. Hama Rikyu Garden is conveniently located and have plenty of greenery to enjoy. You will get to see some flowers during the right season. It is nothing spectacular or extraordinary with this garden (this is just my personal opinion, I have been... More

Gardens are huge, so be prepared to walk...but they are lovely to see. The highlight is the teahouse in the middle of the gardens, which serves green tea and a small sweet. The food and drink is just OK and isn't overpriced, BUT the setting is just stunning. A great start to my Tokyo adventure!

This is the best place to go after you ate lunch. The view of the gardens is spectacular and the flowers make it and even better experience. The tea house in the middle of the garden is very traditional and submerge you into the common way of drinking tea.

Beautiful gardens in the heart of the city very close to Tsukiji market so the perfect place to relax after the hecticness of the fish market. Lovely in all months of the year. Brilliant traditional tea house is well worth a visit for Matcha.

this is a large and beautiful garden with lots of history. You also have to go through this garden if you wish to take water taxis from the Hamarikyu garden stop. Admission to garden is 300Y so it's a bargain.

Lovely grounds about a 10 minute walk from the tsukiji fish market. Extremely peaceful and expansive. At the far end there is a dock where you can catch a boat to asakusa. Really made for a perfect day.

We popped in after coming across this garden near the end of our walk around Tokyo. There was only an hour left, so we covered much of the southwest quarter of the gardens. This meant we missed out on most of the larger lake and bird-hunting grounds. But we did see the spectacular iris gardens near the smaller lake. I... More

A nice garden near the Tokyo bay. It contains a salt-water pond filled with an array of fish. There was a vibrant flower garden when we visited, a field of orange-coloured flowers. Around the main pond there are many birds amongst the highly manicured tree branches. You also get a good view of the rainbow bridge as well as a... More

We caught a river boat from Asakusa to Hama Rikyu. It was a hot day. We wanted to stay out of the sun and decided to just walk through the park to get to Ginza area.
