A very nice place to visit. The garden next to by tall buildings and the Sumida river is quite a welcome sight in the large city. Take a walk around the pond or go check out the tea house. You may take a river cruise from here up to Asakusa. Don't miss the centuries old pine tree. There aren't many... More

Nice Japanese garden but there ain't much to see during the time of June unless you go there during the Sakura times. It would have been much better to go during the Sakura times

This is a nice little park in the middle of Tokyo. It has a nice pond and a tea-house. Not much trees so it can get extremely hot during the summer. Its a worthwhile place to take a stroll when its not too sunny. I would not make a special trip just to come here. There are many other nicer... More

Attractive gardens in the midst of the hustle of the city, a nice place to relax for a while. Make sure to visit the tea house for a traditional experience of drinking green tea and a small cake/sweet.

I made an early-morning visit to Hama-Rikyu Gardens on a Saturday morning on a recent trip to Tokyo. In spite of its proximity to downtown Tokyo, trains and traffic, the park is an oasis of calm. Well maintained yet not crowded, the park offers great vistas whether just taking a stroll or looking for some photography (for the latter, the... More

This is certainly Tokyo's best garden. It is wide,open and gorgeous with various plants and trees and expansive ponds. It seems amazing that a quiet garden can be found amidst Central Tokyo's jungle of glass and steel. This public garden park was the site of a villa of the Shogun Tokugawa family in the 17th century. Here you can do... More

We visited Hama Rikyu Gardens just after having breakfast at Tsukiji Market. At Tsukiji Market, since it is a working market, there are forklifts, cars and workers darting about, playing dodge with the tourists. It was chaotic. Just a few hundreds yards away is Hama Rikyu Gardens, truly an oasis in Tokyo. It is a wide expanse of greenery with,... More

This is considered to be Tokyo's finest garden. It is large and has beautiful plant materials. ponds and open spaces. It is very safe and can be visited in 4 to 6 hours.

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.
