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

A very enjoyable place to spend a couple of hours just minutes from the busy Tsukiji Fish Market area. Entry fee is 300 yen, over 65years is 150 yen, I produced my drivers license for proof. There is a free audio guide in English which other visitors told me was excellent. A big feature is the lovely tidal lake that... More

Beautiful Japanese gardens where they shot scenes from "The Last Samurai." You've got to visit the Tea Rooms on site and recharge over a green tea whilst overlooking the lake.

This is the second time I've been to these gardens, I loved them on my last trip and had to return. Sitting in the tea house is a must as its very relaxing on a hot morning.

After many trips to Tokyo, I finally got to visit Hamarikyu Gardens as I had seen many favourable reviews. However, for Japan, and even for Tokyo, it is pretty average compared to some of the other offerings (such as the park in Shinjuku). My overall impression was that it was unremarkable - the water areas were not especially well presented,... More

This is wonderful spot to escape the crowds of the city and fish market. The old pines and maples are spectacular, and the walk around the tidal pond is so peaceful. Be sure to save enough time to enjoy tea and cake at the visiting tea house.

Tired of people and crowds? Spend a few minutes walking around these lovely gardens and have some tea in the teahouse. Restful.

Lots of history. Recommend a guide to fully appreciate the historical and cultural aspects. A nice green and pleasant oasis amid the Tokyo bustle and surrounded by high rise buildings. We tried Matcha tea in a historic tea house for a little taste of traditional culture. We were there before the cherry blossoms but this park would be incredible a... 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.
