Easily accessible and a beautiful little walk right in the heart of the city. If you don't make it, I can't say that one is missing out on a hidden gem, however, if you're in the area, it's worth the petite stroll. We were there in January, so it wasn't quite as full of life as perhaps warmer months, the... More

It is not a big garden, but if you want fell the old style Japanese garden, this is a good place to spend 2hours.

On Sundays, parts of the park are blocked off to traffic (similar to Central Park) due to foot and bike races. Wonderful chance to walk and take in the sights and beauty - there are plenty of "squat" toilets available throughout the park.

I visited the gardens as part of an organized tour. The 300 year old pine tree was nice. Due to winter weather I was unable to see the garden in bloom. However I was lucky to ding a tree with a few cherry blossoms in bloom. The bridge over the tidal pond was closed for renovations.

Very pretty gardens, take advantage of the free audio tour, available in several languages. This provides a good overview of the gardens and their history

If you are looking for a typical Manicured Japanese Garden, then this garden is not for you. After paying a reasonable entry fee we were met by an enthusiastic volunteer who provided us with free electronic guides. There is a wide walk beside a canal, some tea houses that were being renovated, a 400 year old tree and some meadows.... More

This park has a wonderful feeling to it, a moment of calm surrounded by a busy city. We were lucky enough to visit in the cherry blossom season, which is stunning of course, but it's pretty enough in its own right to be worth a visit. Can recommend the tea shop by the lake, a lovely experience that more than... More

I'm very glad we visited these gardens - they are indeed an oasis of tranquility. There is a small entrance fee, then a very helpful volunteer guide who spoke excellent English gave us a brief run-down on the history of the gardens. You then have the option of taking a free audio guide with you that fills you in on... More

We stumbled upon these gardens and throughly enjoyed them, I found it very tranquil, I may even go as far to say some of it rubbed off on me!, it is truly an oasis in a city, such lovely contrasting scenes of the city and the gardens. I had planned and looked forward to visiting the Shinjuku Gyoen National, enjoyed... More

This is a very beautiful and considerably large garden in the city center. There are two tea houses in the garden but both were closed when we went there. So, I recommend you don't go to the garden in winter. This garden is by the Sumida River and there are lakes in the garden. It is very clean as all... More

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.
