We had actually set out to visit the fish market, but it was closed for a holiday! We decided to visit the gardens then take a river boat. It was quite a long walk in the heat and there was lots of development and building work taking place which made it unwelcoming to pedestrians. A small fee was paid to... More

• The Hama Rikyu Gardens didn’t have anything blooming while we were there, but the gardens do feature an exquisite 300 year-old pine. What’s really striking about Hama Rikyu is how its surrounded by sky scrapers on almost every side and also across the river. This provides a really drastic juxtaposition which makes the park memorable and unique. Also memorable... More

Pretty quiet and relaxing. Easy to access from anywhere via the underground. Not the best gardens in Tokyo in my opinion, but worth a stroll.

We walked around the gardens and then had tea in the beautiful, serene little tea house. Definitely a great break from the crowds of Tokyo

It was a nice afternoon with a wild variety of trees, plants and flowers. However, this was nothing really special; perhaps because I live in China and got used to such gardens. The good thing is that we ended up catching the boat to Asakusa and Senso ji temple from the boat stop inside the park. I give it a... More

My wife and I took the Sumida River Cruise from Asakusa to get here although there was a stop on the Yamanote Loop within a short distance . The Gardens themselves are very nice to stroll through and weren't very crowded when we went in the afternoon. Also, if you're interested the Pokemon Center is very close nearby

We went here on a very hot day but still managed to walk to the large pond and around some trails. I really liked all the oddly shaped trees. Be sure to see the one that is 300 years old. The trails are well maintained and the park itself is an oasis of beauty in the middle of urban density.... More

Hama Rikyu Gardens are easily reached from Chuo Dori, the main shopping street in Ginza and very close to Shiodome if you need to go there for business or just to see how business like this suburb is. It has depicted by many artists since as early and the 1800s and is the perfect place to relax for a half... More

We arrived on a swelter day, 36C in the shade, 85% humidity so we really didn't see this place in the best light. Never-the-less it was a quiet zone in the Tokyo bustle. At this time of year there didn't seem much going on around the garden planting, nice walk though

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.
